8-11 years old      Commanding Minecraft

Students will learn the basics of game and level design using Command Blocks in Minecraft! They will create their own adventure map and game in Minecraft.  Great introduction to game design without having to learn a programming language. Must have Minecraft experience on computer.

 

 

Ages 8-12    Robo-Tech Tech: Builds and Coding

Coding: New!  Imagine That! kids will learn LUA, a Coding Language using CodeCombat!  Students will use this platform to learn the science behind computer programming. We choose an Avatar to win armor and gems while writing LUA code and play the game in real time. Writing Basic Syntax first, students move to higher levels using Loops, Algorithms and Conditionals battling their way to victory with each correct coding sentence.

Machines: 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. Using technic bricks our students will build Big Game Fishing, Circus Magna and The Walker! Each of these activities will offer their own challenge. Circus Magna and Big Game Fishing employ magnets to produce power and movement while the Walker is motorized with levers using gears and a ratchet help it “Walk” around.

Session 2:  

  • Fee:  
    • Early registration by 10/15:  $203
    • Regular registration:  $223
  • Dates: 11/3-1/12   No class days: 11/24, 12/22, 12/29, and 1/5
  • Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm

5-7  years old       Science, Robotics and Tech:  Electrified and Robified

This STEM class is an exciting combination of Hands-On Science, Technology, and Robotics

Read all about this class here.

Science will include electricity and magnetism, sound, fluorescence, and lovable insects.
Technology will include boost robots, coding, and machines.

 

Ages 8-12    Robo-Tech Tech: Robotics, Gaming and Stop Motion

Robotics: New! The Express bot will be built with Lego ® MINDSTORMS® NXT’s! All robots built will use the express bot as a base.  With additions to the build we will make a remote-controlled Forklift and then will play a game of Tag Bot.  The base bot gets our students started programming with the basics.  The Forklift adds touch sensors to move and control the lifting action of the bot.  Our challenge will be to navigate to an object, lift it and return it to the starting point. The Tag bot adds touch sensors to the bumper and an ultrasonic sensor to detect the other bots to tag with the motor-controlled tag arm.  The challenge will be to sense and then tag other robots to put them out of commission.

Gaming: New! Let’s create our own game using Roblox Studio!  While your child has been busy playing everybody else’s games on Roblox, they could have been making their own!  Well, we’ll fix that!  Students will create and play their game as they learn all about directionals, anchors and how to make a game that others will be challenged by.  Each week we will progress until all students test each other’s game out.  This is too much fun!!

Stop Motion Video:   Students will create their own stop motion short using Sequential Reasoning capabilities and thought processes to create their video.  Students will plot a story-line followed by the storyboard. As students set the stage, they check and test all equipment for glitches.  In stop motion filming, every step must be taken in the correct order, one small movement at a time, just as a robot is programmed to move from point A to point B. This helps students to gain an understanding of the concepts introduced in coding! Using logic and creativity results in all around great fun!

Session 3:  Coding

  • Fee:  
    • Early registration by 1/10:  $203
    • Regular registration:  $223
  • Dates: 1/19-3/16   No class days:  2/16 and 3/9
  • Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm

8-12  Years Old  Creative Coding  

Wouldn’t your student like to progress beyond programming?  We are now offering Coding Language classes using CodeCombat.  As each level is achieved, such as Basic Syntax, students will move on to higher levels where they will battle their way to gain gems with each correct coding sentence.  Our first session will do battle using Python!

 

 

5-7  Years Old    Coding Crazy!

 How great would it be if you had been able to start writing code at an early age? Our younger students are going to experience 3 or 4 different coding languages in our coding course.  The goal is to expose students to the bare bones of coding languages.They will learn Basic Syntax, Loops and Algorithms with Logo, Scratch, Python or Html.  You will be amazed at how much they learn!

Session 4: 

  • Fee:  
    • Early registration by 3/13:  $203
    • Regular registration:  $223
  • Dates: 3/23-5/18   No class days 3/30 and 4/6
  • Time: 10:00 am-12:00 pm

8-12  Lights, Camera, Action 

This amazing class will introduce Video Production and Stop Motion Videos.

Video Production: We will cover the art of composition.  This includes storyboarding lighting, audio, the rule of thirds, and deciding which shots are worthy of final video.

Students will learn the history of filmmaking and the technical skills needed for filming and editing.  Each day will build upon what was learned previously with the final product being displayed at the  Imagine That! Film Festival!

Stop Motion Video Production: Then we are on to an introduction to Stop Motion Videos where students will create their own stop motion film.  Students will need to use their Sequential Reasoning capabilities and thought processes to create their video.  First, students need to lay out a plan that starts with a story-line followed by the storyboard. As students begin to set up their stage they will have to check and test all equipment for glitches!  In stop motion filming, every step must be taken in the correct order, one small movement at a time, just as a robot is programmed to move from point A to point B.  Using logic and creativity results in all around great fun!

5-7  Hawaiian Treasure Hunt: An Art and Science Adventure

Come join us on our exciting adventure!  We found a secret treasure map and must follow Dr. Lipid, our arch enemy, through the Hawaiian Isles to see if we can catch him there.

Science: We will explore treasure maps, decode invisible messages, and create iridescent fish on the Island of Oahu.  Children will get to make boats so we can move between the islands.  When we arrive in Kauai we learn about and create a jelly fish from GAC and explore properties of water.  As we study the Big Island, we will blast off volcanoes and learn about the rain forest! Next, we gaze up into space and study the stars from the highest mountain, Mauna Kea.  We will then look back in time as we do an anthropology dig and look at petroglyphs.

Art: The Art will be comprised of making a lei, beautiful sand pictures, 3-d fish art, and more!
