Young Bot Builders camps

http://www.youngbotbuilders.com/

 

The purpose of Young Bot Builders is to educate children through building, problem solving, teamwork, and creativity using various Lego elements. Kids love playing with LEGO® bricks and there are now ways to teach them the basics of engineering and how the world works around them. As they learn about gears, motors, pulleys, levers and building it will allow kids to one day transfer those concepts to real life models.

 

After school programs for Robotics: Bricks 4 Kidz

http://www.bricks4kidz.com/

 

Bricks 4 Kidz classes provide an extraordinary atmosphere for children, where we learn, we build, we play… with LEGO® bricks. Programs are built around our proprietary model plans, designed by engineers and architects, with exciting themes such as space, construction, and amusement parks.  Our specially designed project kits and theme-based models provide the building blocks for the Bricks 4 Kidz approach to educational play. At Bricks 4 Kidz, we believe that kids learn best through activities that engage their curiosity and creativity.

We offer activities for children ages 3-13+,
