Course Information


Grades 4-5

Course Description

Lions and Tigers and Bears... Oh my! In Amazing Animals Robotics, students create their own robotic animals. Build them; program them; and then make them RRROOOAARR!!! Students have fun and learn about engineering, coding, circuits, and sensors as they build Dinosaurs, Dolphins, Panda Bears, and much more. During each class, students build a different animal robot. They learn about the animal and its behavior in its natural habitat and then are provided instructions on how to build it. Students, build the robot out of LEGO bricks, gears, and pulleys as they learn Engineering concepts. They add motors, circuits, and sensors for the electronics. And then connect via Bluetooth and code their robot to react to its environment autonomously. All the while, students have fun and apply the Math skills they are learning in school at the time. Your child is sure to have a wild time as they build, learn, and play!
