LEGO® enthusiasts who love to tinker with technology will discover new building challenges in our class. Students will experiment using Ozobots, Cubelets, LittleBits and more to navigate around obstacles and move objects, controlling sound, speed and directions. Design teams will create dynamic vehicles and rides, and will challenge each other with their creations. Students will learn to use wireless remote controls and experiment with simple programming commands. Creative exploration time included in every class. Everyone takes home a custom LEGO® minifigure each session! (Students re-use the model kit parts each week, so models don't go home.)
