Sometimes you’ve gotta try before you buy.
That’s why we’re hosting our first ever one-hour workshops for parent/ child pairs. We have two this week:

1. Mindstorms.
It’s an awesome programming language, but fairly complicated. Curious to know if it’s a good fit for your child? Join us for some hands-on building and basic programming to find out.

2. Video Game Programmingwith Scratch, the drag-and-drop programming language developed by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. It’s a great programming language for grades 3+. Why not give it a try and see if your child is interested?

Dates, times, registration info is here: http://adventureswithrobots.com/blog/mindstorms-workshop-feb1-2012/

In 2011, a University of Washington study concluded that by age seven, both girls and boys associate math more with boys than with girls.
In other words … Houston, we have a problem.
Seven-year-olds are in first and second grade. Have you checked with your young girls lately to see if they already think they aren’t as ‘good at’ math and science as boys? http://adventureswithrobots.com/girls-get-science/

Our Storybook Science classes are selling out because guess what – kids love to get their hands on goop and earthworms and … who doesn’t have fun (safely) exploding a home-made, reusable volcano?
