The morning class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build an airplane rescue, a giant escape, and a sailboat storm. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer. This camp introduces our youngest engineers to fundamental concepts of energy, materials and movement. Campers explore and construct different toys throughout this camp, including spinners, magical boomerang cans, wind-up whirligigs, helicopters, rockets and more.
