@Wings of Eagles

-

(This is an advanced class - MUST have completed a program either at Wings of Eagles or in your school)

Do you love the Disney/Pixar movie WALL-E? Do you like to build things using LEGOs? Have you ever thought about programing your own robot? If you answer yes to these questions, our LEGO Robotics course is for you! This introductory course introduces students to the basics of NXT LEGO Robotics. Students will work in teams to design, build and program their own robots. Students will be involved with programming their robots through several challenges.

Rocketry (Grades 4-8)

@Wings of Eagles

Rockets are the oldest form of self-contained vehicles in existence. Early rockets were in use more than two thousand years ago. During a long and exciting history, rockets have evolved from simple tubes filled with black powder into mighty vehicles capable of launching a spacecraft out into the galaxy. Few experiences can compare with the excitement and thrill of watching a rocket-powered vehicle, such as the Space Shuttle, thunder into space. Dreams of rocket flight to distant worlds fire the imagination of both children and adults. Come to Wings of Eagles and learn the science behind rockets. Be ready to build and fly your very own rocket.
