Learning With Legos After School
LEARN HOW TO CODE USING A SPHERO BALL, LEGO WEDO ROBOTICS AND IPADS
Ignite your child’s desire to learn while enhancing their skills in science, engineering, technology, and coding. Students will be divided into groups to solve challenges each week through the use of Lego kits including WeDo Robotics 2.0, educational apps on iPads, a Sphero ball and more. These fun challenges will teach your young engineers and coders how to develop their own code, test the code and then work together to problem solve any mistakes. Students will be encouraged to use a “Growth Mindset,” meaning, don’t give up, learn from your mistakes and trying new things is fun! We hope in learning to code and participate in these fun challenges our students will learn to see failure as a springboard for growth and learning new skills. These classes are perfect for any child that is creative, likes to build with their hands, is a problem solver or is interested in robotics and coding. *Instructor will pick up your child for class and deliver them to Panther care afterwards if needed, please send a nut and peanut free snack with your child each week.
