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.
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 computers to teach them to move, react, and solve various challenges.
Each month there are separate Beginner, Intermediate, and Advanced sections for new and returning students.
STEM Teams Registration

IMPORTANT: Winter teams can only be registered before January (prior to the start of the programs).
New enrollees are required to register for the mandatory training session.
We appreciate families who refer their friends to our programs. If you have referred one or more families and they register, we’ll give both families a $10 credit towards their fee. Just ensure you’ve listed the families’ names.
Registration for the Winter season is only available in January, so don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity!
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 can continue to hone their skills for next year. Kids who were interested but missed being on the team this season, can join the development team and get a taste of what to expect next 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, Into Orbit. 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.
