SumoBots Robotics and Snapology Animation
The ancient art of SUMO wrestling may be fun to watch, but certainly not so easy to compete in. Not anymore! In this program, your child will design their own SUMO wrestling robot that will compete against their classmates bots for the title of toughest SUMO Bot. There are no limitations put onto their robot designs and they will have the opportunity to refine their robots as they compete during the program. This design process will make them better engineers, better programmers, and better collaborators. Don’t worry, they will be guided by a trained Snapologist to help them accomplish their goals as they design and battle!
Snapology Animation Studios
Who doesn’t love an action-packed animation movie that brings our favorite toys to life? In Snapology’s Animation Studio program, students get to do more than just enjoy those movies, they get to create them! In this technical program, children will work in teams to learn the fundamentals of stop motion animation and develop their own animated movie starring some of their favorite LEGO® mini-figures! Students will go through the entire movie making process with their filming partner, from plot development and set design to detailed visual and audio editing. The best part, their movie will move beyond the classroom and be uploaded to Snapology’s YouTube channel so they can share their film with friends and family for years to come!
A full day is both SumoBots Robotics and Snapology Animation.
