The Science Cosmos Ashburn/Loudoun branch offers STEAM enrichment programs in Loudoun County. Our office is in Ashburn but we offer our classes in schools and community centers all across Loudoun county. Our STEAM Educators love to teach.
In this Hands-on program from Science Cosmos, Kindergarten and Pre K Students learn age appropriate concepts of force, speed, predicting and measuring, They do this by building models with LEGO Duplo bricks. Fun models like a pinwheel, Car, Goal Kicker, etc. Working in pairs, together they learn measurement of distance, time, weight; counting, calculating, and problem-solving. They even learn to observe and analyze and enter their testing data on worksheets. This is a popular class where students actively build, explore and learn while having Fun! (Ages 4-5)
In this Hands-on program from Science Cosmos, Students learn concepts related to robotics and programming. Working as budding robotic engineers students use the WeDo Lego Robotics platform and build lego models bases on many themes that they can relate to, such as dancing birds, flying, soccer. Students work in Pairs and build Lego Robot models featuring working motors and sensors and they program their models using a graphic drag and drop software interface. Subsequently they modify the model’s behavior by changing the construction of the model or the software program. This is a popular class that is enjoyable for a budding robot engineer. (Ages 6 and 8)
In this Hands-on program from Science Cosmos, 1st Grade Students learn concepts related to robotics and programming. Working as budding robotic engineers students use the WeDo Lego Robotics platform and build lego models bases on many themes . Welcome to the wonderful world of moving and programmable robots! This Lego Robotics class enables students to work as robotic engineers while learning concepts in STEM. Students work in Pairs while they program and test robots built using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3/NXT platform. They learn how robots work by combining software, Sensors and Motors on a programmable robot. Students learn how to use the Sound Sensor, Light Sensor, and Ultrasonic Sensors. Why robotics? Because it's exciting for students and a great way to learn S.T.E.M concepts. They learn while at the same time having Fun!. (Ages 9 -12)
