Our K-1 Summer camps include full of fun STEM activities that will take us both indoors and outdoors! Click on any class name below for its description.

  • Lego Engineers: Early Engineers (A Weeks), Let’s Roll, Engineers! (B Weeks)

    Using a LEGO Education kit designed for ages 5+, our Early Engineers will learn about simple machines by building seesaws, spinning tops and more!  In Let’s Roll, Engineers! we’ll start each class with a brief story-based challenge to build our own vehicular solutions.  
  • Invention Lab

    Students will use electronics and physics to create objects that glow, float and fly! 
  • Storybook Lego

    Think outside the box and return to the days before Legos came in kits. We’ll provide the Legos and the inspiration, your children will provide the imagination! In each class the instructor will read a story and then demonstrate how to build some of the stories characters out of Legos. An awesome way to learn about engineering!
  • Intro to Video Game Programming

    Thank you M.I.T.! The university’s Lifelong Kindergarten Project has developed a new, younger version of its multimedia/ video game programming language, Scratch. Using Scratch Jr. on our iPads, grades K-1 will learn the basics of programming while building their own video games!
