Halls Of Learning

**Summer 2010 Registration Now Open**

For information and registration for Old World, New Learning:
Lego Yuh Mind Jrs @ Bellefield (Montego Bay) click here

Lego Yuh Mind Jrs is a hands-on learning experience that allows students to playfully explore ideas in Science, Technology, Art and Mathematics. Working and communicating together, participants build 3-D models that develop valuable academic, creative and problem-solving skills. All courses have small group sizes.  The camp will run from July 5 - 29, 2010, at the Stella Maris Pastoral Centre, 62 Shortwood Rd., Kingston 8, Mon - Thurs, 9am - 1pm.

Courses:

1. Early Builders (3+ to 6 years) - This is the starting point of our programme and serves to develop fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and storytelling abilities. Activities are based on weekly themes.

2. Young Inventors (6 to 11 yrs) - This is the next stage and gets into simple machines and more complex models. A combination of step-by-step instructions, reverse engineering and open ended activities are used here.

3. Artful Bricksters (8 to 13 yrs) - This course focuses at the artistic end of the spectrum. Under the guidance of a master sculptor, children will learn techniques to create mosaics and sculptures using a variety of pieces.

4. Storytella-botics (10 to 13 yrs) - This course is an introduction to robotics and represents the next stage after Young Inventors. Working with a partner, children build and program their robotic creations using software on the computer.

Every week there will be a different set of activities.
