Camp Details

AGES 7 TO 10 | MONDAY TO FRIDAY | 9AM TO 3PM | $650

This full day camp is designed for children between the ages of 7 to 10 years old who are passionate about LEGO® and Robotics, as well as animation and video editing. Children will be doing robotics for the first half session and animation for the second half.

During the Lego session, children will be introduced to LEGO NXT/ EV3 and explore all the fun and mechanics that LEGO NXT/ EV3 has to offer. As they build and program different robotics projects using LEGO® and Mindstorms, children get to learn about mathematical and scientific concepts, basic programming aspects, as well as teamwork and leadership skills that can be directly applied to the real world. All while having fun!

During the animation session, children will learn how to plan and film their own LEGO movie using StopMotion and edit their video with sound effects and music and see their story come to life! This encourages children to unleash their creativity and let their imagination run wild while creating their own movie.
