2024 Mathnasium Engineering Builder's Camp -STEM Activities Descriptions

all fun and educational projects are built on LEGO® bricks or Snap Circuits®

All LEGO-based activities start with exploring the project’s science background, then building and programming the model, last completing the document and presenting the results!

  • Milo, the Science Rover with Motion Sensor - Build and program Milo Discover ways that scientists and engineers can use rovers to explore places where humans cannot go.
