LetGoYourMind STEM Summer Camps (Ages 6-13)

Calling all LEGO enthusiasts! LetGoYourMind STEM has the summer camps for you!

LetGoYourMind Summer STEM Programs offer structured day programs where kids can experiment with LEGO bricks, and learn the basics of design and engineering while having a blast! Our summer programs run for one week long, Monday through Friday, 9 AM – 3 PM. We offer separate classes for children of all ages to ensure that learning occurs and students are engaged.

During the week, kids will work in small groups. Our teachers will lead the groups in guided STEM-related building projects. During STEM builds, kids will experience the engineering process. This includes designing, building, testing, and modifying their creations. They’ll encounter obstacles and have to think critically to overcome them with their builds. Our dedicated teachers are there every step of the way, helping kids discover their passion.

Each day of camp offers something new and exciting. By the end of the week, your child will have participated in a range of activities that stimulate creativity and a passion for discovery and exploration of the world around them! Each of our LEGO building projects encourages creativity and teamwork. Our classes range from structured group builds to free building time.

2022 Summer Programs

Master Builders and Coders with Stop Motion Animation: Ages 6-8
9:00am – 3:00pm
Join us and become a Master Builder. Before each LEGO brick creation staff will discuss key engineering and physics concepts with the children and how they relate to our builds. Students will then build their LEGO brick creations using axles, gears, battery packs and motors following PowerPoint presentations. In addition, children will learn how to code their LEGO builds using a drag-and-drop based interface using Bluetooth technology. In the afternoon, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop motion animation. Students will be able to build their own movie sets and devise their own plot, with LEGO mini figures and other LEGO bricks, using professional stop-motion animation software. Cost: $355

EV3 LEGO Robotics and Minecraft with Stop Motion Animation: Ages 9-13
9:00am – 3:00pm
Come join us as students build multiple robots that can swing, smash, tilt, spin and launch LEGO and mini figs across the room! Each day children will use LEGO, motors, gears, and sensors to code their robots. After each build students will have the opportunity to apply what they learned using STEM-based principles to experiment with the coding and modifying their LEGO creation. During the Minecraft portion of the day, students will be tasked with building a maze. A maze that is filled with traps, tricks, and tactics to protect them from archenemies. Instructors will use Command Blocks and Redstone to teach students how create cool defenses to use throughout their maze. At the end of the week students will try to solve each other’s mazes. In addition, children will have the opportunity to produce their own LEGO stop motion animation. Students will build movie sets and devise their own plot with LEGO mini figures and other LEGO bricks, using professional stop motion animation software. Cost: $355

Mission to Mars and Minecraft with Stop Motion Animation: Ages 9-13
9:00am – 3:00pm
Three, Two, One … Lift-Off! Students will design and program a LEGO built rover. They will tackle the challenges and adventures of space robotic exploration. Participants will modify and code the EV3 robot using color and sonic sensors to help maneuver through the unknown land! They will work in teams of two to complete six missions that prompt creative problem-solving, communication, and teamwork.

During the Minecraft portion, students will learn more tips and tricks to create an even bigger and more complex space maze. Students will learn movie magic, including rigging, jumping, easing and many more effects to help bring their stop motion animation alive. Cost: $355
