Expand your creative interest in LEGO® building elements and learn technical fundamentals of programming and construction!
What You Will Learn: 

Students will merge their creative interest in LEGO® TECHNIC building elements with their “technological lifestyles.” Participants will use the LEGO® EV3 technology to design, construct and program robotic solutions to complex engineering challenges. Input from sensors will permit robots to autonomously navigate around obstacles or retrieve objects. Students will leave with an understanding of the relationships and common themes that connect mathematics, science and technology, and they will be able to integrate these principles into their everyday life. Participants will be using an iconic programming language. This software, combined with the planned curriculum, creates a fun, fast-paced and exciting introduction to robotics!
