Lego In Motion Ages: 6 - 9

Young budding engineers love this "hands-on, minds-on" program. Concepts of simple machines such as gears, pulleys, levers and wheels are introduced through a series of activity-card LEGO building projects. With the use of a motor and electrical controls, the models come alive right before their eyes! All new models to tinker with this summer.


Minecraft Survival Adventure Ages: 7 - 10

We may be dodging fireballs from exploding volcanos or hiding from snow giant on Mt. Everest. This will take team work and collaboration as we mine, craft, build and problem solve our precarious situation. Students will be solving this survival adventure on a teacher-monitored closed server.

Lego Robotics Ages: 7 – 11

Lego Mindstorms provides wonderful hands-on opportunities for the students to experiment and learn about the fundamentals of robotics, construction and computer programming. We will be using the all-time familiar Lego bricks to build around a micro-computer and using computer software to bring the robot to life!

Modding In Minecraft Ages: 8 - 12

Are you interested in checking out modpacks that let you ride an ender dragon or a creeper pig? Or get a NASA workbench to build a rocket and blast off to the moon and plant your own flag on the surface? The possibilities are endless with different modpacks – come have fun!

Video Animation Gaming Ages: 8 - 13

Students will be using the software program ‘Scratch’ developed by MIT Media Institute to create animation, music videos, Pac man like video games and more. Creations from this class along with a copy of this software will be sent home so they can continue to have fun!

Computer Coding In Minecraft Ages 8 – 13

This class is more than just “mining” and “crafting” in Minecraft. Students will conceptualize, design and learn how to create mods and modify the game using JAVA. For students who have good listening skills and interested in computer programming, this is a fun introduction to object oriented computer programming
