Our Robotics & Science courses in Alaska are a great way to keep your elementary or middle school-aged child inspired, motivated and engaged outside of the classroom. If your son or daughter loves to play with technology, he or she will have an amazing time navigating kid-friendly software to construct and animate an assortment of cool LEGO® robots. New to robotics? That’s ok! No prior knowledge is needed, and our teachers can modify lessons to suit your child’s ability. All your son or daughter has to bring to class is a little creativity and a big imagination!
Build In-Demand STEM Skills!
STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers are on the rise, which means now is a great time to equip your son or daughter with important 21st century competencies. And that’s exactly what our Robotics & Science courses in Alaska provide: your child will develop skills in key areas including computer programming and problem solving as he or she learns how to construct and animate a number of LEGO® robots with a partner. It’s a fun way to get an educational boost!
Collaboration, Innovation and Fun Unite
With a maximum of 12 students per session, our Robotics & Science programs in Alaska provide an effective mix of collaborative projects and personal learning in a comfortable, small group environment. This means your son or daughter will be able to receive personalized attention while also making new friends with other budding engineers or programmers. Working with a buddy, your child will construct a variety of robots using LEGO® bricks and kid-friendly software. After each class comes to a close, your child will complete an activity summary worksheet to help reinforce the STEM competencies learned in class — and to show you all the cool new things he or she learned in class!
Boost imagination! Our programs include:
- Kid-friendly programming software that helps students build practical skills — and that makes their bots come alive!
- Fun STEM-focused projects that excite, engage and equip students with key 21st century skills
- Weekly communication with parents, which includes a session summary, pictures and a preview of next week’s project
