Join us for a 4-day club that utilizes Let’s Start Coding kits. This program is intended for teens 13 and up, basic (such as Hour of Code) understanding of coding, basic typing and attention to detail is required. Limited to the first 20 people.

These kits combine physical building and program coding to allow users to create various guided projects in order to take their basic understanding of coding to the next level. The projects take some time to complete since you’re building both a physical item and coding the project to do what you desire. This club will repeat in July with the same lessons. To allow more teens to participate, please only attend the June OR July session.

Have you ever wanted to learn how to make a robot come to life? Join us for this 3-day program to build and program LEGO Mindstorm robots. Come for one day, two days, or all three...it's up to you!

LEGO Mindstorms are robotic building sets that use Technic, a more versatile LEGO building system using beams, pins, gears and axles. EV3 is the 3rd generation robot in the Lego Mindstorms robotic line. In addition to the standard Technic building blocks, Mindstorms has three electric motors, five sensors, data cables and a “Brick”. The idea behind these kits is to allow teens to build, program, test, and modify robots.
 
Teens can work in groups, or individually on kits (as space allows). Open to grades 6-12; however, this is a trial-and-error program, so participants will not be given the answers to "fix" issues they may encounter with their robots. They will be expected to troubleshoot and come to the solution independently...because that is how we learn.
