Junior Robot Builders
Junior Builders is the perfect class for early exploration with engineering and robotics. Students will use the LEGO® DUPLO® building pieces to design basic real-world concepts. Students will also have an opportunity to have an understanding of science and engineering with every hands- on class project.
– Designing LEGO sets and connecting it to Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (S.T.E.M.) with real life skills through engaging & fun hands-on experiments.
– Creative Engineering Design Masterpiece
– Using LEGO WeDo 2.0 program for class activities, demonstrations and presentations.
