Our Young Engineers, Robot Academy, and Robot Academy Jr. classes feature four new LEGO engineering projects each month. Students can sign up again and again to take part in new builds and learn about different mechanisms.
If you are a returning customer and your grade levels have been shifted slightly for virtual classes, please enroll your child in the course they were taking before the switch to virtual learning.
For now, Mindstorms Fundamentals does not have a virtual follow-up. We are working on adapting our much-loved upper level classes to an online format.
GAME DESIGN SEQUENCE
We encourage all students to enroll in the introductory course before advancing to higher levels, regardless of what previous in-person courses they have taken with TRG. This ensures everyone is competent in the new virtual learning technology we are using.
After four weeks, students advance to the Intermediate level where there are new games monthly. The intermediate course is designed to be taken repeatedly, and students will tackle new challenges each month.
All Game Design classes focus on teaching programming with a fun, hands-on approach that keeps students engaged.
For class requirements, setup information, and other details, refer to our class registration pages.

My son loved this class! The instructor was amazing - engaging the whole class and also giving individualized attention.
CLASS REFUND POLICY
Classes may be returned up to 10 days before the first session for a 10% administration fee. Between 9 and 1 days before the first session, a 50% refund is available. No refund is available the day of the first session. Though it is rare, The Robot Garage reserves the right to ask a student not to return when there are repeated or severe discipline issues. No refunds will be given in these situations. Families are responsible for watching all virtual learning setup videos, asking for help if needed, and making sure the students are ready on the first day of class. There will be no refunds given for technical difficulties if customers have not followed these steps. Because these classes are capped at 5-6 students with long wait lists, our refund policy will be strictly adhered to.
