Teaching robotics at the AVA Gallery

Uncategorized

Taking some time out of the world of fine art photography to teach some kids a bit of logical problem solving, robotics and programming. Using Lego engineering to solve challenges like getting up a hill, escaping a maze, moving supplies and of course drag racing.

My Lego Mindstorms robotics classes run for four weeks in the summer (always sold out) as well as after school programs in the fall, winter and spring at the AVA Gallery in Lebanon, New Hampshire in the restored Carters factory.

We have a lot of fun to say the least. In the most recent class we built a chase vehicle to carry a camera crew so we could capture first Lego person views of the race.

I used to coach First Lego League team when my son was in middle school in Maine and New Hampshire (4 seasons!). Now I have a bit more laid back approach with the classes and camps.
