Lego Robotics Studio Program Sessions will be a guided exploration of your child's interest in robotics. Each session will start with an opportunity for students to show and tell what they have done before or between each class with an opportunity to ask the instructor or fellow students to help solve any problems they've encountered. The instructor will then lead a 20-30 minute lesson on a new robotics topic such as elements of programming, mechanical design, gearing systems, robot navigation, or how to use sensors. Then students will have the remaining time to either dig deeper into those lessons or work on their own designs with support from the instructor.
