Summer Tech Camp for Kids 7-9 Years Old
Jr. LEGO Robotics: Early Engineers™ tech camp is for LEGO® lovers who want to bring motion and life to their LEGO builds!
What Kids Will Learn
Build and program simple machines, mechanisms, and structures with LEGO WeDo technology and perform a series of mini-challenges. Kids will construct LEGO robots that move with motors, react with sensors, and emit sounds and control them using basic visual programming. LEGO robots remain at camp; pictures of robots and LEGO creations are sent home after camp.
