Here’s a fun introduction to the world of robotics and mechanical engineering, designed especially for grades 1 and 2.  We’ll learn what programs do and how to write our own.  Each class meeting, we’ll build a different project and then use motors, sensors, and our own programs to bring our creations to life!  Projects include drawbridges, sliding fortress gates, motorcycles that pop wheelies… and more!

Class Format: Seven 60-min. meetings, once per week.

Students will tackle challenges that real NASA engineers face, like how to land a rover on Mars without breaking it (not easy for astronauts -it’s like an egg drop on steroids!). We’ll also learn about hovercraft and try our hands at liftoff!!  Grab your astronaut helmets, since this class will take you OUT of this world!
