AR – December 6: LEGO Robotics + Sports

Interesting combo, no? You can’t see me, but I am winking. This week we’re exploring LEGO robotics, using Jessica’s kits* – just so we’re not all mixing up our bricks.

For performances, we’ll use a five-minute timer to keep both actors and audience happy. Let’s do …

Time to build your dream world, shoe-box sized. Please bring the items you’ll need to craft a mini-world of your (or your kid’s) choosing.
