Lego Robotics Lab

Class # 41   Grades: 4- 5- 6

Class Overview

Due to unforeseeable circumstances, we will not be running a Lego Robotics course during Summer Academy 2018. We intend to bring this outstanding course back to Summer Academy in 2019. We are sorry for any frustration or confusion this may cause. Please contact Mike Schroeder at if you have questions.

What can build a car, diffuse a bomb, traverse the surface of Mars, climb sheer walls with ease, fly at high speed, and shoot lasers from its eyes?  ROBOTS!  What’s even cooler than robots?  LEGO ROBOTS! Join the Lego Robotics Lab, and you’ll learn to design, build, and program your own robots.  Choose to tackle problem solving challenges we provide, or let your imagination run wild and create the next R2-D2!  We’ll use Lego EV3 software to program our bots.  If you’re already a Mindstorms/EV3 expert, we’ll challenge your skills. If you’ve never programmed before, we’ll teach you how.  No experience required, just imagination.
