The first part of each morning session will focus on engineering with Lego Robotics, and the second half will focus on Creativity, Coding and computer science.

The camps are divided by age group:
STEM + C3 Introductory Camp: (Gr K-1) Using LEGO WeDo 2.0 students will create something different each day. Students will build and learn to program a cooling fan, a race car, a recycling truck and even a science rover! Students in K-1 will gain creative experiences in coding and higher-level thinking skills. By using Blockly, Coding Awbie and Coding Jam, students will increase confidence in coding knowledge and explore their own innovative ideas.

STEM + C3 Intermediate Camp:
(Gr 2-3) Students will build robots and program them using WeDo 2.0 and Lego Mindstorms. Each day of camp students will learn how to program sensors and drive the robot. In session two, students will use a variety of coding options such as Scratch Jr., Swift Playground and Blockly.

STEM + C3 Advanced Camp: (Gr 4-5) Campers will have a chance to sharpen design and engineering skills with EV3 Lego Robotics in the first session each day. In our late session each morning, campers will have time to get creative with coding in our computer science activities. Students will use Java and Swift Playgrounds.
