LEGO® Robot Fairy Tales
Using stories to introduce programming!
Participants will help program robots to solve puzzles and challenges inspired by stories. They will be encouraged to make the tales their own and help tell, or act out, the different scenes. This is a low screen-time activity where program will be created using coloured tiles, and then translated to robot language by the instructor- with input from the kids!
Introduction to Stop Motion Animation
Fascinated by animation? This is the class for you!

LEGO® Robot Rescue!
Calling all young Lego robot designers! This is the best way to get started. Together, we’ll learn how to build cool robots and other machines.
Oh no! We need to get much needed supplies from point A to point B using our robot vehicles! But in between there are water, land, and air obstacles!
Participants will design and program robots to move the supplies across each of the terrain types, navigating obstacles, and transfer them to the next robot. They will have access to Lego Mindstorms, and more. The challenge difficulty will be adjusted to meet the participants’ skill levels and interests.
