THIS IS HOW WE BRICK IT!
Learning STEM principles using LEGO® Technic components to construct awesome remote controlled mechanized models.
Utilizing LEGO® WeDo to build, program, and apply concepts while learning basic software to activate the machines and their sensors.
Working with LEGO® Mindstorms® with EV3 robots with color, light, voice, sound, GPS sensors.
Hands-on, building, and programming unique robots to intelligently navigate through an environment and perform tasks.
IT’S ALL ABOUT TOUCH!
Awesome mechanized LEGO® models, infra red remote controlled, come to life in front of the students eyes, by following step by step instruction cards and tablets, allowing the students to complete the models; then proceed to play. Using their creativity and imagination add components to the models, ending up with new personalized models. Some students elect to be creative from the start and build their own imaginative models.
