  • summer chess

Our Chess Competition Team is designed specifically for students who are looking to take their chess game to the next level.

Most kids learn chess by participating in group chess courses. Although it’s a wonderful way to learn for new and novice players, these courses are not structured for more experienced players who want to get better.

Read more about our chess team here.

Registration is only available prior to April 1 (when the program begins), so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity! Important note: new enrollees are required to sign up for the 2-hour private lessons. This ensures new students are brought up to speed on minimum chess concepts they need to know for the team.

  • robotics team

This 10-week course is for kids interested in furthering their robotics knowledge. Students who have just completed their FIRST LEGO League (FLL) robotics team season or who have completed the Winter Robotics Development Team can continue to hone their skills for next year. Kids who were interested but missed participating on either teams can join this spring and get a taste of what to expect next competition year. Either way, the development team program is a wonderful way to continue to encourage your child’s robotics interest.

Students will be divided into small teams where they will work on teamwork, building, and programming a robot for this season’s FIRST LEGO League (FLL) challenge.  The last class will involve FLL style competition where friends and family are invited to attend. Each child will receive a robotics team t-shirt and the winning team will receive a trophy.

Although it’s helpful to have prior robotics experience, it is not necessary as long as your child is interested and enthusiastic about participating in this program.

3D Video GameMaker, $60

Grades 3 to 8


Child FName, LName and Grade

Our Video GameMaker program lets students become producers as well as consumers of these widely played games.

Students are introduced to the basics of game development while learning to use Kodu gamemaking software. This software uses a visual programming language designed to be accessible to children and made specifically for creating games. Kodu’s various capabilities enable students to develop and program a wide range of inventive and visually interesting games that are played in a 3-D world.

Returning students progress to developing increasingly complicated games to include multi-players and multi-levels.

Minecraft Madness!, $50

  • Minecraft

Full/Closed (please register for May or June)
4:30-5:30
Friday, 4/5 – 4/26
Grades K to 8
Lost

Join the Minecraft Madness! Minecraft is a widely popular 3D video game that lets users explore, construct, create, and interact inside an open and changeable virtual world. Because of its educational potential, Minecraft has evolved into an excellent (and engaging) way for students to learn about computer science, technology, and other STEM-related subjects. If students are already Minecrafters, our courses will help to satisfy their love of the game. If they are not familiar with Minecraft, these courses are a wonderful way to get started on developing a digital literacy that will aid them throughout their academic careers.

Both experienced and new Minecrafters are welcome, as each of our monthly courses introduces a new world or civilization, with different missions, quests, or challenges. These tasks encourage students to learn, to think strategically, and to work together to accomplish their goals. Students do not need a Minecraft account as we use a proprietary curriculum where kids access Minecraft using our accounts and explore and learn in our networked server.

Robotics, All Levels, $60

4:30-5:30
Thursday, 4/4 – 4/25
Grades K to 8
Battle Bots

  • LEGO robotics

Learn to build some amazing robots! (Can you tell our puppy robot from a real dog?) Students are introduced to the basics of robotics while working hands-on with various LEGO robotic systems, including Mindstorms, Mindstorms NXT, and EV3. Students design and construct different robots and then use them to battle each other in the competition ring. 

Each month there are separate Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced sections for new and returning students.
