Build, Modify, Code LEGO Amusement Thrill Rides & Stop Motion Animation

For campers entering grades 2-3

Channel your inner Master Builder and create your very own LEGO amusement park thrill rides where Everything is Awesome! Before each LEGO brick creation, staff will discuss key engineering and physics concepts with the children and how they relate to our LEGO rides. Students will build LEGO brick cars using axles, gears, pulleys, battery packs, and motors. In addition, children will code their LEGO builds using a drag-and-drop-based interface using Bluetooth technology. In addition, students will use Sandbox games to design and create their own castle with secret passageways, towers, moats, secret traps to catch intruders trespassing. In the afternoon, students will create their own mini movie set, learn the parts of a story and create an animated movie using LEGO mini figures and other objects. The students will also learn how to edit their films, attach music, and add titles/credits using Professional Stop Animation software.

This camp is presented with our program partner LetGoYourMind.
