    Summer LEGO Camp

    The Summer LEGO Camp will combine elements of Story Starter, WeDo, and free play. With StoryStarter the students will learn the basics of story structure as they create their visual story line using LEGOs. When the students are finished building, they will link the physical to the digital world as students design their own comic strip story out of their LEGO creation. The LEGO Education WeDo platform, powered by LabVIEW, redefines classroom robotics, making it possible for primary school students ages 7 to 11 to build and program their own solutions.

    Summer LEGO Camp

    The Summer LEGO Camp will combine elements of Story Starter, WeDo, and free play. With StoryStarter the students will learn the basics of story structure as they create their visual story line using LEGOs. When the students are finished building, they will link the physical to the digital world as students design their own comic strip story out of their LEGO creation. The LEGO Education WeDo platform, powered by LabVIEW, redefines classroom robotics, making it possible for primary school students ages 7 to 11 to build and program their own solutions.

    Summer LEGO Camp

    The Summer LEGO Camp will combine elements of Story Starter, WeDo, and free play. With StoryStarter the students will learn the basics of story structure as they create their visual story line using LEGOs. When the students are finished building, they will link the physical to the digital world as students design their own comic strip story out of their LEGO creation. The LEGO Education WeDo platform, powered by LabVIEW, redefines classroom robotics, making it possible for primary school students ages 7 to 11 to build and program their own solutions.

    Preparation for Pre-Algebra

    Are you looking forward to taking Pre-Algebra next school year, but not sure if you're ready? Are you feeling uneasy about how you will do next year in math? Then you're in luck. This course will be perfect for you. During this week long process, students will refresh and review previously learned topics, along with new concepts that are fundamentally all things Pre-Algebra. This course is geared towards students who might want extra practice with understanding these critical foundational concepts, before entering into Pre-Algebra in the fall. Ultimately, there's no better way to feel prepared for this next level in math, than to spend a week really diving deep into the concepts you're going to build on for the next nine months.
