Our Robotics & Science programs in Iowa are an excellent way to ensure your elementary or middle-school aged son or daughter stays inspired, motivated and engaged outside of school. If you have a budding programmer or engineer who loves to play with technology, he or she will feel right at home using hands-on, kid-friendly software to build and animate cool LEGO® robots. New to this type of thing? No worries! No past experience is required, and our instructors will gladly tweak teachings to meet your child’s needs. All your child needs to come equipped with is a little creativity and imagination!
There's No Better Time to Learn STEM Skills!
With STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) careers continuing to grow, there’s no time like the present to help your child develop vital 21st century skills. And that’s precisely what our Robotics & Science programs are designed to do: your son or daughter will build important competencies in areas like computer programming and problem solving while learning how to build and tinker with a variety of LEGO® robots. It’s a super cool way to gain an educational edge!
Our Integrated Approach
Each Robotics & Science class in Iowa is small, comfortable and personal (maximum of 12 students per session) and offers a unique mix of collaborative and self-guided projects. This means your son or daughter will be able to receive personalized attention while also making new friends with other budding engineers or programmers. Your child will work with a partner to build a new robot each week, using LEGO® bricks to construct their creations and computer programming software to bring the bots to life. After each session wraps up, your child will fill out a project summary worksheet in order to bolster the STEM concepts learned that week — and to share his or her wonderful achievements with you!
Our innovative courses feature:
- 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
- A personal, supportive educational environment where imagination, creativity and new friendships blossom!
