For Grades 1-5

Mondays or Fridays (Library)

The LEGO® Robotics program team is pleased to bring back Play-Well TEKnologies’ popular STEM with LEGO® and Jedi Robotics with LEGO® EV3 Level 2 to Cherry Chase! Play-Well has been teaching engineering to kids since 1997 in the SF Bay Area.

The goals of the class are to:

  • Solve problems by developing and enhancing each student’s problem solving and critical thinking skills
  • Explore the world by introducing students to concepts and vocabulary of Engineering, Architecture, and Physics.
  • Express themselves because LEGO® is a medium with tremendous creative potential.
  • Above all else: Have fun!

Teaching Methodology
Students work individually, in teams, and as a group throughout the sessions. A short discussion and demonstration of the day’s topic starts each meeting. Children are given a design/building/programming assignment. Instructors will provide individual assistance and instruction and facilitate challenges, performance testing, competitions, and modifications to projects.
