LEGO Science Math Smart – Age: 4.5 to 6 years

Young campers discover the joy of building goal oriented models and learn concepts in STEM. They get to build hands-on models on their own and learn to problem solve and think critically. Campers build several models with challenges and questions that trigger children’s imaginations. This will help them build problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Campers are introduced to a variety of STEM vocabulary, and they learn how to apply them to the projects they are doing.

Amazing Robot Animals – Age: 6 to 9 years

Robotic animals! This hands-on robotics camp by Scienzminds is appropriate for a younger age group. They learn how to build animal-themed robots incorporating various sensors and motors. Students learn a drag-and-drop programming interface and program the robots to perform various actions. Kids learn several STEM and social science concepts in a fun and engaging way while they develop problem-solving and critical thinking skills.

Robots for a Greener City – Age: 9 to 14 years

Focusing on the theme of renewable energy the student build challenging models, such as a power plant, a wind turbine and a dam.They learn how to harness the power of Sun, wind and water. This camp includes several activities, which guide students from simple to more advanced programming utilizing the LEGO NXT platform. Students are challenged to apply their programming and problem-­‐solving skills by making their robots solve real-­‐ world engineering challenges related to renewable energy students engage in scientific inquiry, reasoning and critical thinking.

Origami. West Chester, OH

By admin | Uncategorized

Origami – We may or may not want all our kids to be rocket scientists but it is when I come across articles like this http://2045.com/news/32974.html, it reinforces my faith that all we can do is to expose our kids to the possibilities, for sky is indeed the limit. Nurturing thinking, creativity and learning is what we can offer best as parents and teachers. So to create this idea of possibilities, to ignite the imagination, we will also include some origami model making along with the summer Robotics camp. As most of you know, my son Pranav has been an Origami enthusiast and has spent incredible amount of time learning Origami and continues to do so.

Pranav is excited to teach this and the models will be specific to the age groups. Cost of the program is $50/child/week. The class will last 45 mins – 1 hour and all the material will be provided. He plans on covering anywhere between 5-10 models in the week,

As I venture on this new journey, I look forward to your wishes, continued support and request you to pass this on to your friends and others.. As always, please do not hesitate to write, text or call me at 513.295.1599 if you have any questions.

Thank you and Sincerely,
Sabitha
