Previous LEGO Mindstorms experience is recommended for this workshop.

LEGO Animation Studio

In one day, build your own mini movie set and create your own animated movie using provided LEGO mini figures or other objects you bring or make! Using LEGO Cam and LEGO Studios software, you use a computer and video camera to make your animated movie using stop-motion and live video techniques. You then edit your movie and add exciting sound effects, music, narration and titles with the LEGO Studios software. Your finished movie will be mailed to you on a DVD. Bring a sack lunch for 45 minute lunch break.

LEGO Robotics Vision

Learn about Robotics Vision using the LEGO Mindstorms Vision Command system.  You program a computer to react to changes in motion, color, or light.  Learn construction, programming and teamwork skills.  In small teams, program a video camera and robot to solve provided challenges. Recommended for age 10 and up (adults are welcome to register).
 

LEGO Robotics After School Enrichment Classes

This class is an introduction to building and programming robots using the LEGO Mindstorms RCX Robotics Invention System.  Students will learn mechanical design, construction, programming and teamwork skills. In small teams, using LEGO blocks, motors and sensors, students build robots that can walk, draw, move objects, or find their own way and avoid obstacles. Students use a control console or computer to teach their robots to move, react, and make sounds in order to solve challenges.  This class is good preparation for kids interested in robotics competitions such as FIRST LEGO League.  New challenges available for returning students.  (LEGO Mindstorms NXT classes available for intermediate level students.)

This class is taught in six to eight 2 hour sessions as an after-school program for third to fifth graders, or middle school students.  Contact your School regarding availability.
 

LEGO Robotics Camp
(offered during July/August in Palo Alto, California)

This is a five-day fun and creative learning experience for kids to attend during the summer.  Kids work in pairs to solve challenges by building and programming robots using the LEGO Mindstorms robotics kits. In addition to having fun, participants learn about mechanical and software design, problem solving, and teamwork skills.  Beginning and Intermediate levels available.  (Click Here for more details.)
