Our Robotics & Science programs in Iowa are all about keeping elementary and middle school-aged children feeling inspired, motivated and engaged after school and beyond. 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 needs to pack is a little bit of imagination and creativity!
There's No Better Time to Learn STEM Skills!
With careers in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) steadily increasing, now is the right time to equip your son or daughter with critical 21st century competencies. And our Robotics & Science courses in Iowa are designed to provide exactly that: your child will acquire important competencies in key areas including programming and problem solving as he or she navigates interactive software and learns how to build and animate fun LEGO® robots with friends. After school learning doesn’t get much cooler than this!
Here's What Makes Our Programs Great
With a maximum of 12 students per session, our Robotics & Science programs in Iowa provide an effective mix of collaborative projects and personal learning in a comfortable, small group environment. This means your son or daughter will benefit from personal attention while at the same time fostering new friendships with like-minded peers. 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!
