    • Explore elements of good video game design
    • Create your own video game

    Breakout Boxes
    • Classroom escape games

    Robotics Lab
    • Build robots and write programs to find creative solutions to problems
    • LEGO WeDo and Mindstorm kits

    Highly trained Lindbergh educators will lead the maker activities, which have been designed to support student development, especially in the area of science. Students will engage in making predictions, designing, testing, revising and retesting their project designs. On the last day of camp, students will have an opportunity to share their awesome creations.
