What is LEGO® Robotics?
In 1998 our favorite toymaker decided to take LEGO® to the next level by introducing engineering and robotics to kids. Since that time, they've become experts in this field with an array of well-tested, age-appropriate products that The Robot Garage has used in classrooms since 2011. Our kids wanted to build every week and quickly outgrew LEGO®'s curriculum, so we designed our own projects and created a multi-year curriculum for Pre-Kindergarten to 8th Grade. We are now one of the only LEGO® Robotics experiences available for subscription in the world. Our curriculum aligns with the NGSS (National Science Standards) and aims to create an "aha" moment at the end of each class.
Why Game Design Classes?
What parent doesn't hear themselves telling kids they are spending too much time on their screens? Here at The Robot Garage, we try to meet kids in a place where they are already engaged. We've also found that by tapping into kids' love of video games, we can teach quite a bit of coding in fun and creative ways. We've been teaching MIT's Scratch game design for years. It's a great way for elementary school students to learn high-level coding concepts in an age-appropriate way. If they get the concepts down when they're young, learning more complex languages will be much easier when they're older.
