What can be better than smashing a Lego town with a robotic Godzilla? Nothing!
Around 40 students are participating in Mundelein Elementary District 75's Summer Enrichment Program at Mechanics Grove School. Lego Robotics for Beginners and Theatre Camp are the two classes offered for students in kindergarten through eighth grade.
Local storyteller Paddy Lynn is teaming up with Deborah Lee for the Theatre Camp, where kids do theater-related activities and performances. Tony Cho is leading students in building and programming Lego robots.
"It's cool because you get to build machines with cool Lego brains," incoming fourth-grader Gina Cosentino said. "We get to build Godzilla robots and destroy a Lego city."
The current A two-week session ends June 13. A second session that runs June 16 to 27 offers the Theatre Camp and an Advanced Lego Robotics class.
