Back by popular demand this class is a repeat of last winter’s popular program! This year, we feature a new game, as well as updated robots and software. This is an intense 8 week robotics program. You will build a robot that will compete in a public competition against other students’ robots. It will be built with interchangeable parts, which are programmable by a personal computer, with flashing lights, moving motors, wheels, levers and arms at your command. Innovation and creativity are required. Styling and originality are rewarded. You will learn about electronics, physics, and computer programming and see how what you learn in math class helps you build a robot. Each student will build their own robot. For best success, you will take home the robot to build, modify, and tweak each week. Enrollment is limited to 20 students so sign up early.
Fee: $124.00 ($119.00 if you register online)

Children learn to play the violin using the ‘Mother Tongue approach’ (also known as the Suzuki Method) developed by Shinichi Suzuki. Parents are an integral part of this method. They are required to attend weekly private and group lessons with their children, learn to play the ‘Twinkle’ variations, play the recorded music daily and practice with their children daily. Each student will receive a weekly private lesson and a group class lesson. There will be recitals and opportunities to play for the public.
Fee for the 26 week program: 30 minute private lessons - $600.00, 45 minute private lessons - $850.00, and 60 minute private lessons - $1,100. Tuition may be paid in four installments. First installment must accompany registration.
Register: Call 920-929-1155 to register. Mid-season registrations are welcome.
