    Robotics at Spark

    We have a great introduction to the basics of robotics using LEGO® MINDSTORMS®. This workshop meets for 4 weeks and children work in pairs to construct and program one robot. Each week builds on the previous week so children’s natural curiosity and wonder guide their learning about LEGO® building and computer programming. There is no experience necessary. Children will learn as they go. (The programs conducted by the Spark Museum are not affiliated, sponsored, or endorsed by LEGO® Education or the LEGO® Group.)
