Technology, Programming and Robotics Fall 2017

Your child’s adventure into Robotics, Programming and Technology.

Watch the love for technology spark in your child as we make learning FUN!  Join us for the best Technomania classes this Fall for Grades k-2 and Grades 2-5


Grades k-2  Robo-Rangers: An Adventure Into Programming, Robotics & Simple Machines

This Fall at Imagine That! our students will have a blazing good time as they discover and explore new ideas and concepts using motorized Lego® WeDo Construction sets!  Your child will build jungle animals using drag and drop programming to create movement and the sounds of the jungle.

WeDoBots will allow your student to build robots that can be operated with just a motor and battery box. By offering activities in this way, your child will understand that there can be more than one way of solving a problem.

With Lego Technic bricks our students will learn about pulleys building a clown face that changes expressions and a crane for lifting.  Advancing to more in-depth building students will build and race several styles of cars like the Hurdle Car, a Pinwheel Car and Sail Cars while discovering the fun of Wheels and Axles.

While building with bricks is fun, kids don’t know that they are learning math too! With Lego’s new More to Math Builder program, students will build activities to solve math problems!  Sit back and watch Imagine That! kids STEAM ahead!

Using tablets, students will gain further knowledge of coding and programming with learning games like Box Island and the Foo’s!  Your student will also be introduced to writing coding languages starting with LOGO.

Grades 2-5  Robo-Tech: Your child’s adventure into Robotics and Technology

Note: Your child must be 8 or up to take this class.

Imagine That! kids will get a kick out of this fall session! With Lego ® Simple and Powered Mechanisms our students will become scientists and engineers while understanding mechanical and structural principles in machines used in everyday life.

Robots will be built and programmed with Lego ® MINDSTORMS ® NXT’s! We learn to program the basics with Time, Degrees and Rotations and move on to sensors.  Programming abilities will be tested in the Maze Challenge. Students will build their own maze and program their robots to navigate it.

Students learn programming and coding through Scratch and other languages.

Structural Engineering will be explored using Lego ®Architecture Studio. Lessons focus on Form, Light, Scale, Balance and more and how it all relates to creating and building solid, supported structures.

Watch the love for technology spark in your child as we make learning FUN!

Robotics Club: Minecraft Programming and MINDSTORMS Robots

This program is outlined in detail on our Robotics Club Page.

This is an amazing program for Robotic enthusiast. In order to focus on the programming and robotics the class will be longer and the sessions shorter. The classes will be limited to 10 children.

We will be offering Minecraft Programming and LEGO MINDSTORMS Robotics in the club.
