Main Campus
Located at 43 SW Monterey Road  Stuart

Sensational Science (CLOSED)
(Entering Grades PreK - 6th)

Does your child love Science and Engineering? Does she love to build? Does he have an endless imagination? Mad scientists will explore different aspects of science as they become familiar with the science in their everyday world. Through aerodynamics they will experiment with a variety of flight challenges. They will learn how physics can be fun as they build roller coaster designs and marble mazes. An understanding of how mixtures create shocking results will be developed as they study chemistry through erupting volcanoes, baking soda rockets and more. Campers will become familiar with the critical role robotics plays in their world as they use LEGO robotics kits to design and program bots to complete simple tasks and solve real-world problems. Campers will wrap up the week of fun exploring gooey, ooey, icky creations and more.

LEGO Creation Camp (CLOSED)
(Entering Grades PreK - 6th)

Bricks bricks everywhere! Girls and boys will be presented with LEGO challenges to create both stationary and robotic LEGO creations that will require them to think critically, explore, collaborate and problem solve. This camp is all LEGO all the time with a twist! Teachers will begin each day with a LEGO challenge which each student will share with the group. How many different solutions are there? They will work to build various structures, recreate famous buildings and works or art and learn through the use of these amazing bricks. This camp centers around students individual interests with both independent and teamwork.

Minecraft Education: A-maz-ing Mazes (CLOSED)
(Entering Grades 1st - 8th)  

Scientific American declared, "...not only is Minecraft immersive and creative, but it is an excellent platform for making almost any subject area more engaging." Enter a world of rules, parameters, levels and goals that require hard work, intense thinking, teamwork and problem solving skills. AAALC uses this popular game to provide an academic setting for students. Campers will take a trip that carries them through various mazes, ultimately creating their own as they complete challenges that require them to think critically and plan ahead. This camp will be a week filled with science, technology, engineering and math skills via an a-maze-ing format!          

Movie Making Magic (CLOSED)
(Entering Grades 3rd - 8th)

Are you creative, love LEGO or other similar items and like to make your own movies? This week campers will express their creativity while becoming movie producers, using LEGO bricks, mini-figures, and movie-maker software to develop stories. Campers will learn stop motion movie making as they create their very own animated movie by writing a script, creating a storyboard, developing characters, filming and editing. Campers can choose between clay or other mediums instead of using LEGO. Students will also be introduced to green-screen technology and experiment with related components.
