Take the Robotics Challenge!

For Advanced THE ROBOTS ARE COMING Students Only!

[UPDATE: Although our current Robotics Challenge Labs are now completed, registration is now underway for our Fall 2016 lab programs. All you need to do is CLICK HERE to take a peek at our current lineup.]

Who among us couldn’t use a little 21st Century help in the kitchen?

Help’s on the way when your advancing robotics student joins their lab mates this Spring for our four-week Robotics Challenge: Help in the Kitchen! learning enrichment lab.

 
Using the LEGO sensors, gears, cams, pulleys and structural parts they’ve worked with in their previous The Robots Are Coming labs, as well as common kitchen gadgets, your child and their lab mates will have the opportunity to focus their imaginations and emerging STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) skills on the design, construction and programming of their own automated kitchen helper. . . a machine that shakes out your salt. . .folds your napkins. . . scrapes off the dishes. . . and more!
 
Robotics Challenges! are four-week lab programs for our advanced The Robots Are Coming! students where they are able to more fully concentrate their evolving STEM skills on designing, constructing and programming a specific type of product, such as an automated 21st Century kitchen gadget. . . a modern skyscraper with an automated lift system. . . and more! [Prerequisites: Completion of at least Robots in Motion and/or Robots Coming to Their Senses!]
