About the Program
Take your child’s learning to the next level by enrolling them into our in-person LEGO® Robotics Course located in Glenview or Lincolnshire, Illinois.
In our 4-month long course, your child will master, design-thinking, engineering concepts, and coding in a hands-on learning environment. No prior experience is needed!
Our LEGO® Robotics Program acts as a precursor to joining the Official FIRST® LEGO® League, which is an international competition with over 50,000 elementary and middle school students involved.
We have three robotics classes to choose from: 101 Foundations, 201 Intermediate, and 301 Advanced.

Our LEGO® Robotics Classes
Robot Trainer Lab
For students who have never been exposed to LEGO® robotics.
They will learn the basics of building and programming autonomous robots. Each lesson introduces a new extension to be built onto the Driving Base. These extensions enable it to detect obstacles, move objects, follow lines, and turn by precise angles.
Robot Engineering Lab
For students who have been exposed to robotics in the past.
They will build and program several robots that can be “trained” it to respond differently to different interactions or stimuli, built with their own designs and functions, and will dlve deeper into STEM concepts.
Robot Design Lab
For students who are ready to compete at high-levels of competition.
They will continue building on their knowledge with advanced models and programming. The students will walk through a previous LEGO® Robotics Competition from start to finish to prepare for actual competitions.
