2022 Spring – in-person Lego Class

In this course, students will learn basic building and programming skills using the LEGO WeDo system. We will touch on concepts such as motors, sensors, gears, and pulleys. In a regular class workflow, we will start with an educational video, then guided step-by-step building, guided block programming, and finally, students get to play with the finished model. The lego kits will be provided in class.

The teachers are members from Alphabots (https://alphabots.gearscademy.org/?page_id=249). Their mission is to spread awareness of FIRST and STEM to the local communities. The trial class held in Dec’21 was very successful.

2022 Spring – in-person Robotics Class

In this class, students will be introduced to robotics through the basics of programming and engineering design. We will cover topics such as block code, sensors, and mechanical design. Students will build and program their own personal robot through guided instruction. Instructors will also help the students to participate in their own personal exploration by adding arms or programming functionalities. Materials will be provided in class.
Not only will students gain knowledge in robotics, but hands-on learning will help them improve their fine motor skills and inquiry-based thinking skills.
The teachers are students from Valley Christian High School. Some of them have volunteered at FCSN previously. Their mission is to help children with special needs access equitable learning opportunities, especially in STEM education.
