LEGO Robotics Camp

The Cradle of Aviation Museum is hosting LEGO Robotics Camp for children on Tuesday, Feb. 17 through Thursday, Feb. 19 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Children, ages 5 to 7, can attend the program Amazing Mechanisms in the morning and Adventure Story during the afternoon.

During the Amazing Mechanisms program students will have the opportunity to build mechanisms like dancing birds, learn the basic concept of robotics and foster their creativity as they learn how to program and operate their own creations.

During the Adventure Story program students will build an airplane rescue, a giant escape and a sailboat storm. They will also learn how to program and operate their creations using a laptop computer.

Children ages 8 to 14 can attend the LEGO Mindstorm program in the morning and afternoon. The program is designed to introduce students to the principles of robotics, computer programming and teamwork. Students will have the opportunity to use their imagination and critical thinking skills to design, program and control fully functional robotic models that will accomplish specific tasks by using software to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions such as hitting a ping-pong ball, pushing an opponent’s robot out of a sumo ring, competing in a game of tug of war, and more.

The fee for a half day is $255 and the fee for a full day is $375. To sign up for the programs, visit www.cradleofaviation.org. For additional information, call 516-418-2318.
