Price is divided in 9 monthly payments of $50 each. In our Junior Engineering and Technology Club for K-2nd grade (or 5-7 year olds), students will explore four units during the 31 weeks of classes. In each unit students will use the Engineering Design Process to design and create different engineering projects. Units: Scratch Computer Programming, LEGO Robotics, Makey-Makey and Creative Engineering Builds and Cool Science Experiments. What’s more fun that playing an interactive video game? Writing one! Children will be introduced to the concept of computer programming by writing fun lines of code with Scratch Jr. In this Scratch program, students work together to create their own games, art, and musical instruments while exploring coding foundations. During the Makey-Makey portion of instruction children will expand their computer programming and even computer hardware engineering knowledge to make their own input devices. Hey, why not use a banana as a space bar! During our Creative Engineering Builds and Cool Science Experiments, your kids will get their hands dirty! They start building and mixing and constructing their way to fun! We will get to build fun structures like windmills and test whose bridge is the strongest. This class is a perfect mixture of fun and learning, using LEGO® WeDo™ Robots. Using LEGO® bricks, students build a dancing bird, a smart spinner, a drumming monkey, and more. They also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.
