Our Robotics & Science programs in Virginia are all about keeping elementary and middle school-aged children feeling inspired, motivated and engaged after school and beyond. Your aspiring engineer will have an amazing time tinkering with kid-friendly technology to construct a variety of LEGO® robots. First timer? Not a problem. No experience is necessary, and our teachers are happy to adjust to your child’s ability. All your son or daughter has to bring to class is a little creativity and a big 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!
Here's What Makes Our Programs Great
With only up to 12 students per class, our Robotics & Science courses in Virginia deliver a successful combination of collaborative and self-guided learning in an intimate, personal setting. 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. At the end of each session, your child will complete a project summary worksheet in order to strengthen the STEM concepts learned in class — and to show you all the amazing things he or she accomplished!
Boost confidence! Our programs feature:
- Intuitive, kid-friendly software that helps students build valuable programming skills — and that animates their robotic creations!
- STEM-related activities that are fun, engaging and equip your child with vital 21st century competencies
- Ongoing communication with parents, including emailing you after each session with pictures, highlights and a preview of what’s coming next
