    LEGO® Robotics Build & Code

    10:00am-12:00pm

    Entering Grades 1-5

    Fee $115

    VIRTUAL OFFERING

    This workshop is designed to develop building and programming skills. Participants will work with
    LEGO® WeDo 2.0 to explore and produce a variety of working models. *Siblings can attend 100%
    FREE. Our LEGO programs are perfect for partners so two children from the same household could
    work together but only pay for one. All instruction will take place through Zoom. Parents will receive a
    Meeting ID and Password through email.
    Participants will need a separate device to listen to and view
    Zoom instruction. The computer provided by Seacoast Technology Workshops will have LEGO
    software pre-loaded and DOES NOT need to be connected to a wifi network.
    One perk of a remote
    “camp” versus an onsite traditional camp is that children could continue using the LEGO Robotics kits
    beyond the normal live Zoom hours! Participants DO NOT keep their projects.
