From bricks and cogs to skyscrapers and robots, summer camps with Learn It LEGO couldn’t be more fun whilst providing great brain training for young minds over the holiday period. A new series of Learn It LEGO summer camps has been announced for July and August 2017 at locations throughout Cork City and County.
“As a longstanding favourite game, LEGO provides children and young adults with a way to express their creativity in a fun, engaging and educational way. Learn It LEGO summer camps are an ideal way for young minds to continue to grow and learn during the school holidays, as well as developing new skills and uncovering some new talents of their own,” said Olive Anne O’Hara, Learn It Co-ordinator.
“Whatever the child’s age or level of LEGO ability, the summer camps are designed to be fun, inclusive and educational. From LEGO basic builds, up to high-tech programming and robotics, there is a level for everyone with fun guaranteed,” she added.
Young children from 6 years and upwards work on simpler LEGO creations, incorporating arts and crafts and learning building principles and modelling in a team environment. Camps for older children of 11 years and over are more advanced, with motorized vehicles, robotics and space challenges to bring their creations to life.
The only official partners of LEGO education in Ireland, Learn It camps cover a variety of different creative themes such as engineering, science, robotics, mechanics and construction with children learning through activities and fun daily challenges, all of which are age and ability appropriate.
Learn It LEGO summer camps are running throughout July and August, in Macroom Community Leisure Centre, Bandon GAA Club, Nemo Rangers, Mallow GAA, Carrigaline Lions Youth Centre, My Place Midleton, Clonakilty Parish centre and at Lifetime Lab at Old Cork Waterworks.
Learn It LEGO courses are provided by trained and Garda vetted instructors and cost from €105 per child. Bookings and enquiries to www.learnit.ie, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 021 2430000.
