The Mindstorms Robotics Academy is an exclusive weekly robotics academy program for students in Grades 3 to 6. It is a place where students will engage and learn the Lego Mindstorms technology as the primary tool in a highly motivated environment with other like minded students .

Students will learn how the Mindstorms robot works and gain knowledge of programming using the Mindstorms software and ROBOT C for added variety and skill development. Students will have access to the Mindstorms EV3 robots as well as virtual robotics in the classroom and staying longer means academy students will be able to have access to special academy programs such as certification programs and be selected to participate in robotics competitions.

Students will exercise their creative thinking skills by building and programming their own robots to perform various missions. Projects, tasks and written worksheets are part of the Mindstorms Robotics Academy which is suited for students who are interested in an academic pathway.

At the Mindstorms Robotics Academy, students not only learn how to make robots work but in that process, they learn how to work with others, exercise the academy’s core values and develop a solution pathway to problem solving, which are skills they need for life.
