Robotics Rock!

With the help of Mr. Hans from Computer Explorers, the children from LVCC Ritter School and LVCC Nazareth Area Intermediate began their introduction to the principles of engineering. In this 10 week course, children in the after-school program, grades 1-5, participate in super-cool experiments using computers and LEGO® materials to build simple machines that actually move!

This week the LVCC Ritter School explored levers, pulleys, and wheels to create dancing birds. Wide-eyed, looks of excitement stirred throughout the class as our promising engineers activated the twirling birds. Soon, the entire room was filled with the singing computer noises. Everyone worked cooperatively to solve problems and had a "chirping" good time.
