KidsTek LEGO, Minecraft and Robotics Summer Camps Teach Kids About STEM

DSCN1257 KidsTek Learning introduces kids to the principles and application of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Building working models they can see, touch, and experiment with, gives children a deeper understanding of these principles. KidsTek Learning’s goal is to instill a passion for learning and to cultivate a better understanding of how things work.  And what better way to do this than through things that kids love like LEGO, Minecraft and Star Wars!

KidsTek summer camps are designed by engineers and every teacher has at least one year of college physics.

While exploring, imagining, and creating, KidsTek camps will teach children to:

  • Develop problem solving skills
  • Develop critical thinking skills
  • Learn how to work in teams
  • Develop organizational skills
  • Work on motor skills
  • Learn to follow directions
  • See a project through from start to finish

all of this while having fun and making new friends!

KidsTek is offering LEGO, Mincraft and Robotics LEGO Minestorm camps in Fort Myers and Naples.

During the one week camps the students are taught certain engineering, math, physics, and/or technology principles such as friction, force, inertia, potential/kinetic energy, measurement, etc. Then, by building one or more models, students see these principles come to life in what they’ve built.  All camps are $199.00 for the week.
