For campers in grades K-3
, we will be offering DEILAB’s exciting LEGO design engineering and innovation
coursework based on mechanical, artistic, design and robotics projects. The laboratory environment is structured to enhance curiosity and ignite ingenuity. Labs are built around the application of Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math (S.T.E.A.M.). These skills are convergent and complementary where art and engineering blend to leverage the capacity of human intelligence, adaptability, and innovation. The non-linear learning environment emphasizes collaboration and creativity.
Campers in grades 4-6
will have two options, LEGO Robotics
or Radio Controlled Racing Academy
. For the Robotics
lab, campers design and fabricate working robotic systems, while learning how to program and control fully functioning robots using ether LEGO Mindstorm or VEX systems. Instructors provide an overview of robot mechanisms, dynamics, and controls. Campers learn engineering techniques, solve challenges and develop their own open-ended design projects. Camper design teams work together to brainstorm, test and improve their creations. The RC Racing
lab provides in-depth exposure to the science and excitement of racing. Campers build the cars from 1000’s of pieces into lightning-fast race cars. The building, engineering, innovation and racing experience scales daily with a mixture of instruction, building, testing and hands-on racing. Under the guidance of trained instructors, campers will learn through a curriculum that integrates complex building skills and strategies for innovation.
