Elementary School Robotics Program

We will be starting a STEM-oriented robotics program to teach elementary school kids about the basics of engineering and technical design. The program will utilize robotics kits, specifically the Lego Boosts Kit, for the students to build over a 6 week period in small teams, each team consisting of 5 elementary school kids as well as a high school kid serving as a mentor. The elementary school students will also participate in programming the robots that they build through a simple drag-and-drop style programming software, therefore allowing the students to learn about the basics of programming as well as the engineering skills they are learning from the building of the robot. The program will last a total of 6 weeks and be available for students from 2nd to 3rd grade after school located in the Harvest building.
