HuckleBerry's

Lego Robotics & Engineering!

HuckleBerry partners with Play-Well Teknology to provide our suite of Lego Engineering classes!   These are extremely hands-on classes with no homework and no paperwork from the class itself;

it's ALL building, experimenting, re-building, re-experimenting!

In each class, instructors are teaching STEM concepts & vocabulary with an emphasis in physics and engineering.  Students learn how gears work, where fulcrums should be placed, trajectories, energy displacement, tower / shape strength and so much more through their projects and experimentation.   Lessons are learned through team and solo play and experimentation.

These classes tend to fill fast!

Lego Engineering

9:30 - 11:00  - Ages 6-9

Let your imagination run wild with tens of thousands of LEGO® parts! Build engineer-designed projects and use special pieces to create your own unique designs! Projects are rotated seasonally to ensure that both new and returning students can explore the endless creative possibilities of the LEGO® building system.

All NEW projects for 2024!

Some of our projects will include:

Pendulum Ride - Build and decorate your own pendulum ride, just like the Buccaneer at Six Flags! Construct a hand crank with offset gears and apply torque to swing your ride back and forth. 

Catapult - It's time to chuck some Lego pumpkins! Using levers, construct a catapult and see who can send their Lego pumpkin flying the farthest!

ROBOTICS
Explore Coding using the LEGO® Spike Prime System

11:15 - 12:45  - Ages 9-12

Rise to the challenge to build and program robots using the LEGO® Spike Prime system!

 

Learn about mechanical and software design, loops, conditional statements, problem solving, and teamwork skills.

Design and construct your robot to avoid obstacles, pick up and carry objects, and play sounds. Projects are structured so that students work in an open-ended, investigative environment while having fun.

Some of our projects include:

Steering Bot - Build and program a robotic car with dual motor function and a force sensor. Have your rear wheels power you forward while your front wheel does the steering!  

Ferris Wheel - Build and program a ferris wheel with a color sensor. Set multiple lines of code so that when a certain color is sensed, the motor moves at a different speed for a certain amount of rotations.

Learn Coding using the LEGO® Spike Prime System

1:15 - 2:45 - Ages 7-11

Learn Coding using the LEGO® Spike Prime System Build and program robots in this introductory Robotics class using the LEGO® Spike Prime® system.

 

Learn basic programming skills using a simple and visual block coding system that will allow kids to grasp new and diverse coding challenges.  At this stage, they don't have to actually write the code.  Instead they will bring a block of code that has already been written into their program. 

 

Join us as we build a variety of different robots using motors, sensors and lights that will make for a fun experience that incorporates both building with LEGO® and coding.  Coding will help kids learn to prepare for an event, and then have their robot take an action! 

Some of our projects will include:

Steering Bot - Build and program a robotic car with dual motor function and a force sensor. Have your rear wheels power you forward while your front wheel does the steering!  

Ferris Wheel - Build and program a ferris wheel with a color sensor. Set multiple lines of code so that when a certain color is sensed, the motor moves at a different speed for a certain amount of rotations.

 

This is a great way to prepare young Robotics enthusiasts for our more advanced Robotics programs.
