LEGO Robotics (Grades 3-6)

We will have another LEGO class starting on April 5th and going through June 14th. Class time is Wednesdays, 3:30 to 5:00. The class is presented by “RobotU” and brought to you by your PTA. Students will build and program advanced LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 robots that use various sensors and motors from the robotic competition kits (these are the same sets that the FIRST LEGO League recommends). Parents must sign up to chaperone at least one class–LEGO classes cannot happen without at least one parent volunteer present at each class.

To signup:

Volunteering is fun and a good way so see “what your kid is doing at school!” Look for fliers in kid mail or contact

Jr Robotics


Highland Terrace Elementary PTA is holding 8 weeks of Robotics Classes this spring session for our 1st through 5th graders, Wednesdays 3:35 PM to 4:35PM

LEGO WeDo is an easy-to-grasp software programming and engineering system that introduces young students to robotics. Students build various contraptions that use a motor, sensors, and the programming that they themselves create with the special WeDo Software.

Your student may know little to nothing about programming currently, but in this class they will find out how fun and creative it can be when they learn that they can control the robots that they build.

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math have never been so fun!

Class Fee $96.00
