4:00pm-6:00pm Tuesdays (fall term) OR Thursdays (holiday term) Ages 4-11
With Legos, motors, power sources, and sometimes computers, students are introduced to concepts and enhance their knowledge of physics, technology, and engineering through hands-on explorations of simple machines (levers, pulleys, wheels, and axles), as well as basic mechanics, simple and complex gearing, and also concepts of motorization, locomotion, and sensing and programming.
Students get to thoroughly enjoy applying concepts by building, experimenting and playing with their models of real-world devices such as windmills, scales, cranes, airplanes, pirate ships, dump trucks, clocks, dune buggies, drawbridges, conveyor belts, turnstiles, race cars, moon rovers, etc., and of course, robots, as well as designs of their own creation. All equipment, supplies and materials included.
Taught by The ROC
The very first class ever taught at The ROC over a decade ago was Beginner Robotics, and ever since then students have been learning, teachers have been training, and the program has been growing with the expanding terrain of Lego education, robotics technology and its 21st Century applications. Teachers of this Lego Robotics class have over 10 years of experience working with Lego engineering and STEAM programming including captaining the ROCbotics, The ROC's FLL robotics competition team that has won several awards, including the first place Champion's Award at Dalton High School.
