Conceptualize, craft and create fun LEGO projects with friends in this workshop, which explores the unique ways in which LEGO can be used to build one-of-a-kind artworks! At the beginning of the week, we craft wearable LEGO art in the form of jewelry, keychains and charms. We then move on to discover the world of robotics and programming using the LEGO WeDo platform. Students construct and program autonomous robots by using LEGO parts, sensors, motor and LEGO WeDo software. We even take time to film short movies of our robotic creations using iPad camera technology. Don’t miss out on this opportunity to make multidisciplinary artistic creations with LEGO as your medium!
