Every theme-based session stimulates imagination and creativity as kids learn how to design and animate a LEGO® robot. How cool is that?!
  • Engineering (Grades 1-8): Your child will have a great time completing fun, hands-on activities that look at how machines and soaring structures are built. The creations your child will get to design, evaluate and reconstruct are inspired by real-life structures from around the world!
  • Coding (Grades 3-8): Using our awesome Tynker™ technology, your child will learn how to program and design his or her own animated stories and video games that can be shared with friends! Younger kids will get to grips with the basics of coding, while older learners will explore Python Coding and JavaScript for more advanced programming.
