There’s no better way to keep your elementary or middle school-aged learner stimulated, motivated and inspired after school than with our Robotics & Sciences courses in Virginia. 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 son or daughter needs to pack is a little bit of imagination and creativity!
Learn Valuable 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 & Sciences Course in Virginia 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 Sets Our Programs Apart
With only up to 12 students per class, our Robotics & Sciences courses in Virginia deliver a successful combination of collaborative and self-guided learning in an intimate, personal setting. This means your child will receive personal attention while also developing new friendships with other aspiring programmers or engineers. 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 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!
Our hands-on courses include:
- Hands-on software that helps kids learn fundamental programming skills — and that animates the unique robots they built!
- A STEM curriculum that’s fun, interactive and equips students with essential 21st century abilities
- Ongoing communication with parents, which features a session recap, photos and a preview of what’s in store the following week
- A collaborative, supportive setting where imagination and creativity grow — and where new friendships thrive!
