IntelliBricks for Home School

Being aligned with Common Core standards and offering hands-on science, math, and computer skills, IntelliBricks classes offer a strong STEM supplement to a home school curriculum. Additionally, with our program being heavily focused on building healthy and productive social skills, home schooled students get the opportunity to work with other students in a way they may not normally be able to. Through building with new materials and a new group of peers, home schooled students also build their confidence, communication, and teamwork.


Lego Robotics: WizardBots 
Age: 5 and up

Fly in the magic carpet, capture the 2 headed ogre or ride the dragon! In this class children will build working Lego models that mimics whimsical creatures and contraptions. In the process kids learn to use motors, sensors, gears, axles, pulleys etc. and understand the concepts behind them. They also program the models to make them move and interact with the environment

IntelliBricks will provide all LEGO® and touch screen computers for the camp. Children cannot take home any of their creations or LEGO® products. LEGO® group of companies does not sponsor, authorize or endorse any of our programs.

Lego Robotics: GameBots
Age: 5 and up

Trip to a carnival is always fun! A game of ring toss, a ride of go-kart, duck hunt or just dancing! Who wouldn’t want it? Come join us to build Lego models that mimic carnival games and have some fun while learning all about robots, programming, sensors and engineering concepts like rack and pinion, pulley and wheels, gears, cams etc.

Lego Robotics: BattleBots

Age: 5 and up

Let your little engineers work on big ideas!  Build a catapult and program it to launch every few minutes, construct a cross bow and learn the physics concepts of force and tension, attach a tilt sensor to your fighter plane and program it to automatically speed up and slow down. Possibilities are endless with our LEGO® elements. Our experienced instructors will guide your children through various projects.

Lego Robotics: Mindstorms 
Age: 9 and up

During this 4-6 week long session, children will:
  • Use the intelligent EV3brick and command it through an intuitive software program
  • Use a variety of sensors like touch sensor, color sensor, gyro sensor, ultra-sonic and infra-red sensors
  • Learn basic engineering concepts by building models that solve real world problems
  • Learn basics of programming like commands, flow, simple sensor behaviors, loops, switches etc.
Children cannot take home any of the Lego® or creations.

An Introduction to JavaScripts and Electronics with PodPi *- Level 1

Age: 9 and up

Learn how to make robots powered by JavaScript! These classes will introduce the students to the basics of JavaScript and electronic components from the resistors, LEDs to servo motors and sensors.  The lessons are based on a new comic book series that will engage your child in learning not just the technology but other fun facts about the components and their function in today's devices.  Join us for some fun learning and experimenting.  No prior coding experience needed.
