Kindergarten students build robots (such as the alligator, turtle, train, and car) using LEGO® building blocks and motors. In the process of making their constructions move, they will learn basic engineering and simple machine principles. They will learn about electricity and how gear meshing works to transmit energy. They will also engage in pairs and work with their mentors to develop critical teamwork and collaboration skills. Students use their imagination and apply newly learned mechanical skills to either build their own creations, or follow a blueprint.
Our STEM Education Difference:
Our core educational philosophy centers around an intimate interaction with our students. Because we know that each child learns differently and at their own pace, our 'mentors' assess and monitor your child's skill level; each class they take is matched with their skill and interests. Our curriculum and mentors focus on mastering current skills then challenge each student to get to a higher level.
Regardless of which class they take, or how many times they have taken it, our students do not repeat previous projects - they are always challenged and when they are ready they work on a new and interesting assignment.
