The UC summer academy will help grow your middle school students’ creative problem solving skills and enable them to become the critical thinkers and creators of the future. LEGO® Education solutions provide effective, structured and curriculum-relevant teaching solutions for science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
These solutions enable students to understand challenging subjects, encourage them to develop critical thinking skills, grow their ideas, and make their own creations through playful learning experiences. The projects planned will trigger engagement and stimulate learning by asking students to solve challenges they can relate to. Examples of student projects include, autonomous parking, line detection, automatic headlights, hydroelectric generation, solar power generation, and many more engaging activities!
