Introduction to LEGO Robotics Workshop - Grades 3 and Up

Robotics just got LEGOtastic. Join us for a hands-on, STEAM workshop using LEGO robotics to design, build, and program robots that interact with the world around them. Students will learn the basics of robot building, how to control robots using drag and drop coding from the common block palette, and explore the functionality of touch and ultrasonic sensors while working collaboratively in groups of two.

Students will:

  • Adopt designer and engineering mindsets

  • Work collaboratively to build and code their robots

  • Become familiar and/or expand upon their knowledge of LEGO robotics

  • Learn basic programming skills

  • Practice Design Thinking: defining problems, building empathy, interviewing, active listening
