Budding engineers work on projects that teach LEGO® design and basic electronics. In the morning, students build remote-controlled LEGO® Spybot creations, such as a race car, an AT-AT Walker, a Wall-e® robot, a sleek jet and more. All have built-in motors and infrared receivers which allow them to be controlled with a remote. Then, in the afternoon, students learn about electricity and electronics by building working devices. We’ll use Snap-Circuits® components – such as LEDs, transistors, integrated circuits and relays - to build a radio receiver, light and sound music player, motorized car, UFO launcher, LEGO® insect with flashing LEDs, plus much more! Campers take home a cool t-shirt and a LEGO®-electronics creation. Students do not take home the LEGO projects or pieces from the class. Note: There is a $5 materials fee for electronic components included in the LEGO®-electronics project which students take home.
