In our Technology Club students will explore three technology units during the 18 weeks of classes. In each unit students will use the Engineering Design Process to design and create different engineering projects. We will progress from basic Lego design and building to Lego Robotics and finally we will introduce animation and the children will even make their own Stop Motion Animation with Legos! This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a Ferris wheel, crane, music box, and more. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer. Children are fascinated by cartoon animation and this class will walk them through the basics of animation. Beginning with a simple flip book and progressing though multiplane and stop motion animation students will design and create simple animations individually and as a class.
