Great Neck House Winter/Spring Youth Classes
NEW! STEM After school programs
Fridays starting March 16, 4 - 5 p.m.
Bricks4Kidz after school classes build on the popular LEGO bricks to deliver high-quality educational play. Each hour-long class is an engaging experience for your child with a new project each week. Our unique models aren’t the kits you find on the shelves of a toy store. They’re designed by Bricks4Kidz to teach concepts across a variety of subject areas. We kick things off with a discussion about key concepts related to the model, then get right into the building. Working with a partner or by themselves, your child will experience the hands-on fun of seeing a model come together piece-by-piece, from concept to completion – and it’s motorized!
8 weeks, 1-3rd Grade
Residents $220, Non-Residents $255
Tuesdays starting March 20, 4 - 5 p.m.
Using LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 sets students will have the opportunity to use their imagination and critical thinking skills to design, program and control fully functional robotic models that will accomplish specific tasks by using software to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions such as hitting a ping-pong ball, pushing an opponent’s robot out of a sumo ring, competing in a game of tug of war, and more.
