What is it all about?

This group program opens new opportunities for kids to participate in a groundbreaking robotic experience. This program provides an opportunity to develop and refine decision-making and socialization skills, all while making friends. Participants will work hands on with robotic LEGO in interactive building activities.

For the 2021 - 2022 season, we will be returning to our in person classroom settings.  Once your registration, payment and intake interview has been completed, your child will be confirmed as a participant.  The team will provide safety protocol information to each family that will include drop off/pick up for program, masking and santizing requirments and social distancing requirements.
