Introduction to Robotics—
Learn about the principles of robotics and engineering design. Learn how to program robots through obstacles using the VEX IQ platform.

Intermediate Robotics—A continuation of Introduction to Robotics with an increased emphasis on programming and the use of sensors.

Maker Session—Become a maker! Have fun with hands-on projects. Build structures, boats, cars, and rockets. Learn about electricity and magnets and even play with your food. All this while learning a bit of engineering, physics, electronics, science and technology.

S.T.E.A.M. Girls—A program for girls interested in engineering, coding, and science are mentored and encouraged by accomplished high school and college female students.

3D Modeling & Printing—Learn the basics of computer-aided design with TinkerCAD and FlashForge printing. Create awesome things to take home! (We’ll deliver or you can pick them up at Ridgely MS.)

Fly, Code, & Race a Drone—Program your drone to make it through an obstacle course and have a drone dance party!

VEX Metal Robotics—The fundamentals of VEX EDR, as well as more advanced strategies essential to success within VEX robotics. Along with building and programming, engineering notebooks, competition strategy, and the planning process will all be covered.

3D Modeling for Robotics—An introduction to Autodesk Inventor in order to create detailed, organized virtual robot assemblies that allow for rapid prototyping. You’ll have a big advantage when you finally build your VEX robot with streamlined efficiency.

Flight and Space—Explore the science of flight by learning about and making planes, whirly-gigs, balloons, and rockets.

Video Editing— Use Windows video editing software and/or iMovie to make your own video creation! Learn the principles of video editing and how to make your own movie!

Game Design—Learn the basics of 2D game design and create your own game using the Processing game development environment!

Refund Policy

Refunds due to unforeseen circumstances will be considered. A $5 administrative fee will apply.
