The St. Charles Community College Homeschool Enrichment program is now enrolling for its “Lego Robotics Math Fun” class for ages 7-10 and 11-16.
“If your kids love Legos, but aren’t crazy about math, this is the perfect class for them,” said Amy Fitzwilliam, SCC project coordinator for Corporate and Community Development. “This class takes math and makes it fun through the use of Legos.”
Students will learn real-world applications of science and math concepts using hands-on problem-solving skills. Using NXT Mindstorm Robotics, they will learn the basics of geometry, spacial relationships, patterns, fractions, place values, graphing and more.
Two sections of the course will be offered for homeschool students, one for ages 7-10 from 12:30-3:30 p.m. Mondays, Oct. 8-Nov. 12, and another for ages 11-16 from 12:30-3:30 p.m. Wednesdays, Oct. 3-Nov. 11. Both sessions cost $125 each.
