The camp for children 8-12 years of age, will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Central Time. The cost is $109 per student.

For more than 80 years, LEGO’s have enriched the lives of children by stimulating learning and development through play – a key element of LEGO philosophy. As children continue to learn and enjoy their LEGO experiences, LEGO education spans the continuum from preschool through university to provide valuable lessons in all curriculum subjects from STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) to humanities, language and literacy.
Established in 1998, First LEGO league is an annual science and technology competition for children and youth ages nine to 16. The LEGO Robotics Camp will be using this concept to design, program, and manipulate LEGO robots, and campers will compete as if in a real robot competition. Campers also will use LEGO NXT kits to have fun and learn to solve real-world problems by applying STEM concepts.
