Join us as we explore flying devices and the forces of flight

Mankind’s desire to fly has been an exhilarating ride of faster speeds and breathtaking heights …. all the way into outer space! Soar through the history of flight, experimenting and building flying machines like the great inventors. Learn about the forces of flight by building an airplane to do gravity-defying stunts. Learn about thrust by building rockets that blast into space. Challenge classmates to make creations that fly higher and faster than you thought possible. Keep all five of the projects to extend the fun at home. Come fly with us on this creative, hands-on adventure!

Programming intriguing challenges using Dash & Dot

At Logics we believe that learning how to program robots at a young age is as essential as reading and writing. In this course students will be introduced to Dash and Dot, exciting and energetic robots that can be programmed with Google Blockly. Using this drag-and-drop programming language students will learn essential computational thinking and problem solving skills. Using programming concepts such as sequences, conditional statements and loops, these young coders will develop algorithms to complete stimulating challenges. From choreographing a dance, to saving the day, students will be amazed by Dash and Dot’s actions and feel empowered as they turn their imagination into reality!

This program teaches your children the link between money and work, saving, spending, sharing and giving back.

In Level 1, your child will “earn” income through fun role-playing activities. Then, they learn how to deposit, save, and earn interest in their own pretend bank account at our unique Walter’s FUNtastic Bank. Money math is based on 10’s and 100’s so they can relate values - $1, $10, $100 - to the real world. Just as importantly, your child learns about giving back through volunteerism.

Level 2 continues to build by adding $5, $50, $500 to the money math. Kids learn about life's basic needs—and what they cost. They get to play at doing a job, earning money from it, and watching their account at Walter’s FUNtastic Bank grow and earn interest. They even learn to make withdrawals and experience grocery shopping.

Investigating energy sources and material selection

Energy is very important for our daily lives... and for robots too! But energy is not always readily available or clean to make. Learn about different sources of energy by building several powered robots. Learn how energy is generated and measured, and the challenges associated with each technology. Energy can also be saved by selecting better materials and finding creative ways to save weight. Test the properties of both classical and advanced materials, and select the best ones to build exciting aerospace projects! Join us to empower your creations like never before!
