                                                      This is the age when a love for LEGO bricks explodes and our program fosters that love. During our classes, children explore the principles of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics using LEGO bricks and motors. Our Jr Robotics program offers all the fun of building with LEGO bricks, plus the challenge of computer-programming and robotics. Children have fun while learning how to follow directions, take turns, and share. Members $108, Non-members $120
