Learn Robotics with Engineering & Coding using LEGO® Educational Kits

Learn the basics of robotics, engineering, and coding with LEGO® bricks and elements. Students will build and program robots that will they will use to complete a series of challenges.

Students design, build and program robots using LEGO® Education robotics technology – the powerful LEGO® Mindstorms Robotics system features an easy-to-use programming language that lets students immediately begin simple robotics programming and then advance into developing more complex algorithms.

Students work in pairs or individually to complete projects and compete in themed challenges. This learning lab focuses on the engineering design process, building, and programming using LEGO® educational kits. Advanced activity generally provides additional opportunities with drones and complex and simple machines.

BATTLE BOTS

Campers learn to design and build their own motorized battle cars. Using principles of simple and complex machines, gearing, and mechanical advantage, students will try to flip, push, or smash their opponent’s battle vehicles.

Students learn the use of mechanical lifts, drills, ramps and more to disable or overcome other bots.

Ages 9 – 14

(AKA SECRET AGENT) CAMP ​

Join the elite group of recruits to become a spy-in-training. Agents-in-training will learn about how to break or make codes, learn coding, surveillance techniques, critical thinking and solve logic puzzles. Additional training such as obstacle courses, robot recon and rescue, and developing disguises are part of the new skills they will learn.

Agents-in-training will receive their super-secret mission during each camp.

Ages 9 – 14

Trainees learn their ideas can become a reality as they use LEGO® Mindstorms robotic technologies to create engineering solutions for real-world problems.

We will journey to the edge of the universe in a robotic adventure that glimpses a future when humankind will transform distant planets into livable habitats.

Trainees build humanoid robots, roving vehicles, and mechanical machines of increasing complexity. Then they learn how to program their ’droids to walk, talk, and even see! Take your child’s creativity to the next level with LEGO® technology!

Trainees work as a team to build and test their own designs challenges. The week culminates with spirited contests as trainees test the robots they spent the week building, programming, and testing.

Concepts of simple machines such as gears, pulleys, levers, and wheels are introduced through a series of activity-card LEGO® building projects. With the use of motors and electrical controls, the models come alive right before their eyes!

Students learn how to build and program robots to sing, dance, navigate a maze, hit or pitch a ball, play mini golf, and more.  Campers will build a new project each day, learning how to make things spin, roll, turn and rock.  Then they will take what they have learned to design their own thrills and challenges.

Student participants will experience several exciting activities over the course of each sessions. Every skill level, ranging from beginner to super geek, will need to fire up their brains and prepare to work in cooperative engineering teams. The Maker camp includes the following! Coding Challenges, Battle Bots, Amazing Machines, LEGO® Master Builders, Simple Machines, Architecture, LEGO® Story Builder, LEGO® Mosaic, LEGO® Ev3, NXT, and WeDo Robotics systems,  LEGO® Drones,  and MORE!

FAQ

We believe in letting children learn and explore at their own pace. Our students work in teams and our instructors tailor teaching for each team. This allows us to spend more time explaining fundamental concepts to some students while introducing advanced engineering and programming challenges to others.

Our mission is to provide fundamental and advanced disciplines as it applies to today’s standards. We motivate our young creatives to set new paths for greater possibilities by building personal portfolios to take home at the end of the week.

Join us this summer to see how their new path unfolds.

FUNgineering Learning Labs are appropriate for children ages 4-7.

JR. Engineering Learning Labs are appropriate for children ages 7 and up.

Advanced Engineering Learning Labs are appropriate for children ages 9 and up.

Although we use over 10,000 LEGO® bricks & elements and the amazing LEGO® Education products in our program, we are not affiliated with LEGO® or LEGO® Education.

We believe in small class sizes (maximum: 14 students per educational director and one helper). The children are teamed up in small groups so that only 2-4 students share a kit. The class size is usually limited to 24 students with 2 camp directors and 2 – 4 counselors, the minimum size is 8.

In our core robotics program using LEGO®, our students learn the engineering concepts behind simple machines (how axles, pulleys, and gears work, etc.) as well as elementary concepts of computer programming – all in a super fun environment involving LEGO®! Students learn how to build by building really cool projects, and then we challenge them to build their own and modify the design. We give students time to enjoy free building to help develop their creative process. The power of LEGO®.

ESTEAM Learning Labs and ESTEAM Academy are a Texas LLC, based in the Austin metro area. We’re insured and our instructors are trained with extensive background checks.

As you know, LEGO® bricks can be used to build many different things. Throughout our classes, camps and workshop;  children build several different projects using the same parts and pieces from our kits. Therefor our kits and project may not go home with your student.  We will, however, do our best to take pictures and post them on Facebook

We are in the greater Austin, Waco, Temple and San Marcos Area.  We service the following cities:  Round Rock, Georgetown, Cedar Park, Leander, Liberty Hill, Lakeway, Dripping Springs, Pflugerville, Spicewood and many more.

Check our LOCATIONS page for a Camp, Class or workshop near you.
Don’t see our program in your area, contact us and we will work with you to bring our program to your school or community center.
