Organization Description: 

The X Kids robotics program focuses on building minds through the creative use of electronics and machines. We supply the latest technology, from iPads and laptops to Lego Mindstorms and 3D printers. Every part of our program is geared towards the future. With the guidance of our robotics specialists, students learn the importance of cooperation, teamwork and leadership. Robotics challenges a student to think critically, strengthening reason and logic skills. Students work in teams, promoting leadership and social awareness. Our program stresses the importance of learning organically, by discovery and experimentation.
 Learning through physical interaction gives students a more tangible grasp of math and science. With Lego Mindstorms students will be able to create a variety of complex robots. Combined with 3D instructional computer applications, students can zoom in and rotate virtual models during each step, viewing the process from every angle. Everyone is free to design their own amazing creative inventions! These robots can even be operated remotely by mobile phone or tablet computer.
 The X Kids walk away with the power to know that they can do anything!
 The X Kids camps are great for all kids, ages 4-16.
