Lego Robotics Camps

Dream, design, build and program a LEGO robot!

About the Course

Dream, design, build and program a LEGO robot! During this high-voltage week, our mini-engineers will build a robot and learn basic programming skills in a way that’s specially tailored for them. 

The week will culminate with a maze challenge that they’ll program their robots to complete. Show them it’s possible to bring their imagination to life with this exciting camp!

During this high-voltage week, students will learn how to make their robots walk, dance, grab, speak and follow their every command. With the help of our knowledgeable LEGO instructor, they’ll be given a scenario and then supported as they work together to program their robots to complete each challenge. This day camp is the perfect blend of imagination, skill, and team building to keep your young engineer engaged this summer!

LEGO Camp Dates for Summer 2024 COMING SOON!
