9-week program

Future Engineer

Future Engineer

Future engineers will be learning the fundamentals of mechanical engineering. During this course, you will be encouraged to share your thoughts and perspectives with other classmates as we begin to investigate friction, gears, motors, and gear ratios.

Think Like an Engineer

This class will inspire and reinforce analytical and problem-solving skills as you are taught to see “the big picture”.  Once that is identified, we cut it into smaller slices for observation coupled with peer-to-peer discussion to see how things work from the inside out.

Online Classes

Parents your child’s learning path is up to you now!  Our Engineering workshops bring STEM-STEAM curriculum right into your home via zoom.  Each student receives a build kit that will build up to 9-12 builds. Allow us to fill the gap, between online school and give you a little quiet time. Our instructors are CRAZY-FUN and will keep your student excited about what next weeks workshop will be all about! Kids miss their school friends so now It’s time to reconnect your child with their best friends in the same workshop on the same day and time. Register Today!

Fall 2021 Workshops & Winter Camps: Houston/Katy

In Person Programs

NEW Winter Camps!

We are so excited to offer Winter Camps from December 27-31, for both In-Person and Virtually! Both Holiday LEGO Workshops are 5 days of winter themed fun for students in grades K-4th. This class will emphasize the importance of fundamentals of building and set the groundwork to not only make their creations structurally sound, but also prepare them to make their creations move. 

Every enrollment will receive a special wrapped gift from us to put underneath the tree! This includes a gift and special certificate for their upcoming class! 

In-Person winter camps are located at Grace Anglican Community Church in Katy, TX.  

  • 1/2 Day AM 9:00 AM- 12:00 PM- COST: $185
  • 1/2 Day PM 1:00 PM- 4:00 PM- COST: $185
  • FULL Day 9:00 AM-4:00 PM- COST: $325

LIVE Virtual winter camps are 1 hour every day via zoom. The cost for the 5 day virtual camp is $150 and students will get to keep their LEGO kits! 

  • AM Session 10:00 AM- 11:00 AM
  • PM Session 4:00-5:00 PM

As an early bird special, the first 5 students to sign up for each camp will receive a FREE Robotics T-shirt!

LEGO In-Person Summer Camps

It’s about time! We can’t wait to see your kids this Summer.  Summer Camps are so much fun!  American Robotics Academy is offering a AM/PM or full day  1 week Summer LEGO Robotics Engineering Summer Camp.  Our mission at American Robotics Academy® is to excite, inspire, and motivate young people about the fun, importance and impact of robotics technology in today’s world including STEM/STEAM curriculum. We hope to stimulate their imagination and creativity by encouraging them to explore, experience, and express themselves through our hands-on interactive robotics program. Held in a friendly, sports-like atmosphere, we focus on team building, problem solving, creativity and fun. Students will be working with the widely known and popular plastic LEGO building blocks, including the more specialized pieces such as axles, gears, beams, wheels, motors, microcomputers, pneumatics and other parts that will enable them to safely create animated and exciting mechanical movements and other effects. The LEGO Technic System has been adopted as the standard material for robotic designers, because of their sophisticated and powerful set of mechanical design components. Let’s Build the Future!

Partnering with University of Houston

Justice League Robotics Summer Camp

Audience:  Students entering 1st – 4th.
Camp Description: As a student apprentice in a robotics, a master builder must conquer the concepts of robotics. Learn the basic mechanical properties of how things work and move through a hands-on learning experience. Students will explore the use of gears, pulleys, wheels and axles, motors and so much more. This class will open new windows, leading to the fun and mechanical world of robotics. Students work in teams to create extraordinary builds. This camp will introduce students to why a robot needs power transferred to its wheels from a power source located a distance away; in addition, the direction of the motion needs to be reversed so the robot will go forward instead of backward. Begin your journey in becoming a Master Builder!​

Brick Slayer

Audience: Students entering 3rd Grade to 7th Grade
Camp Description: Join us on an adventure that requires creative thought, time management and team communication as groups build a diverse range of off-road vehicles in challenging activities with other bots! Students learn to build bots using Legos and apply different gear ratios that will enable them to modify bots to race against the clock and play tug of war! This class will discuss drive gears and the various ranges of gear ratios. Here is your chance to learn which gear ratios are associated with speed or torque. Slay other bots in challenges with quirky modifications and diverse power plug-ins to eliminate the competition!

Code Like a Intergalactic Champ

Audience: Students entering 3rd Grade to 7th Grade
Camp Description: Build your intergalactic robot using simple coding with Lego BOOST technology. You will build multiple robots throughout the duration of the course. Program your robot to do your every wish you command in a coding class! Upon completion of the robot builds, each child will learn to program the robot to conduct different tasks using the drag and drop icons on the Boost Lego software. Each team is provided a tablet to access the coding software. Each lesson or challenge must be met before the next step is achievable. Team and individual activities will be conducted to achieve your robot’s goal.

Dumbledore Engineers Grasping Reverse Engineering

Audience: Students entering 3rd Grade to 7th Grade
Camp Description: Do you know any Master Builders with reverse engineering skills? Students will learn in camp that reverse engineering, also called back engineering, is the process by which a man-made object is deconstructed to reveal its designs, architecture, or to extract knowledge from the object. Camp Instructors will engage students in understanding reverse engineering is the process of taking something apart to understand how it works. The process allows junior engineers to create new Lego Bots and modify their Bots to have more power, torque and speed. Campers will explore the different ways to make Bots move, vibrate and dance if they want to! Students learn to think backward in reverse.
