Get ready to build some cool creations you’ll be able to take home with you!  You’ll build some cool projects and learn how to program in Scratch, Jr-a programming language designed just for ages 4-8.  Scratch, Jr is available as a free app, so you’ll be able to continue working on your projects at home.

 

We’ll focus on following directions, fine motor skills and attention to details in this fun, hands-on class.

 

I am in need of one parent helper in this class – your child will receive a 50% discount on class.  I would ask that you arrive 15 minutes before class to help with set up.

Bring Your LEGO Creations to Life!

Get ready to code, build, and unleash your imagination in this exciting robotics class! Each week, we’ll tackle a new challenge, bringing LEGO models to life using motors and programming. Experiment with gears and pulleys to fine-tune your creations, and watch your robotic dreams become a reality!

Fun for Everyone:

  • Young engineers (grades 2-4) will explore the magic of robotics through engaging projects and playful learning.
  • Parents, capture the excitement!  You are welcome to stay or drop-off for this activity. If you leave, please come back early for the final minutes to snag photos and videos of your child’s robotic masterpiece.

Bonus Build Time:

Remember those take-home projects that were a hit last semester? They’re back! We’ll be incorporating a couple of build sessions using non-Lego materials throughout the course, so your child can proudly display their creations at home.

Join us for a semester of creative exploration, problem-solving, and pure robot-building fun!

Level 2: This session of Middle School Robotics is for those who’ve worked with Lego Mindstorms robots in the past.  The pacing will be for grades 5-8.  The planned projects are Drag Racers ( we’ll spend 1 class period on gears) and then spend 3 more on designing the fastest Drag Racers.  Our second build will be a line-following robot.  This can be a very simple robot, but we’ll spend about 3 weeks testing different line-following strategies.  Finally, we’ll spend 3 weeks on autonomous sumo.  What programming and building will help your robot survive in the sumo ring?  Let’s find out!

 

This class will meet Mondays 12:15-1:05 Jan 15-Mar 25

There is no class February 19.

Before we meet, download Scratch, Jr to a tablet, iPad or Android phone. It will not work on iPhones. It would be good to have 1 device for Zoom and one for Scratch, Jr. That way, you’ll be able to see the teacher’s screen and follow along.
We will complete the requirements for Badge 1 at this workshop.  The workshops for badges 2 and 3 will continue using Scratch, Jr to expand your Daisy’s knowledge of coding.
Troop leaders, we’re always happy to schedule a meeting for your troop.  We ask for a minimum of 6 scouts to schedule a troop meeting and the cost is $7 per Scout.

During our winter semester, we’ll work on programming in Scratch and working on projects that help us understand electricity.

In our programming section, we’ll learn the basics of programming in Scratch, a language developed at MIT for students ages 8-16.  It is a block based coding language, so not much typing is involved, although a familiarity with the keyboard will be helpful.  Students will work on a new programming challenge each week and create  cool stories and animations.

During the second half of the semester, we’ll focus on projects that involve electricity.  Get ready to create circuits, light up lights, spin motors, and more in this fun, hands-on workshop.  We’ll work on a variety of fun projects and learn about switches, resistors and  more.  You’ll have your own electricity kit to work with during class and at the end, you’ll get to take your supplies home so you can continue experimenting.

Stop motion animation is a great way to share fun stories with your friends and family, but sometimes it can be hard to decide what to do.  Stop Motion Animation Challenge Club is here to give you new ideas and skills to take your animations to the next level!  Each week students will be given a new set of parameters to create a short animation with to grow their skills and comfort zone.

Please send the username and password for your child’s Cloud Stop Motion account with them to each class.Students are required to have a free Cloud Stop Motion account before the first day of camp and must have their username and password with them while attending. You are welcome to send a copy in an envelop just in case your child forgets.  Please register for the individual account-not an organizational account.  Organizational accounts may not be accesible in class and the log-in process is complicated. Without a personal account, animations can not be saved.

 

Students may use their own devices or use LabSpace cameras and PC’s during class. Tuition is $50 for 5 sessions.  Class Max-6 Please note that your tuition holds your spot in class. We will not be able to hold a spot without payment.

We’ll have 2 five-week sessions.  If you would like to take both, we’ll be sure to have new projects in each set.
