Our Mission

The purpose of Young Bot Builders, LLC is to educate children through building, problem solving, teamwork, and creativity using various LEGO® elements. Kids love playing with LEGO® bricks and there are now ways to teach them the basics of engineering, programming and how the world works around them. As they learn about gears, motors, pulleys, levers and building it will allow kids to one day transfer those concepts to real life models.

Testimonials

“My son was in your spring break camp. I thought you might appreciate this story. Tonight at dinner we were discussing fixing up bikes for [the] summer and my husband was trying to explain how the chain works and [my son] says ‘I know – there are two gears and the chain goes around them and makes it go. I learned it in LEGO® Camp!’ Then he said ‘and to change the speed, you change the size of the gears. I think I could fix it.’ :-)”

“I like the way you take personal time with each child to assess their progress and refocus them on the goals. I liked the peaceful atmosphere of your classroom and the kindness and patience you show. Your preparation and knowledge base is excellent too! You’re making a difference in your student’s lives!”

“All three of my kids were in the YoungBotBuilders program this summer and had the best time! They were in the car waiting to leave when we it was time to take them there and disappointed when we showed up to pick them back up! Other than the fact that they really wanted to show us all the cool things they built, they could have stayed there all day each day. I’m really excited to put them through the camp again next year, as this has only lit a fire in their LEGO® creating hearts.”

“It’s the only camp that we could get my kids unanimously interested in and excited about. Each day they didn’t mind getting up early and running out the door even on a summer day. Afterward they were so mentally stimulated and yet had expended such great concentration and thought in their designing that they were so calm, happy and peaceful in the car on the way home I thought I had the wrong children. LOL! Good healthy fun for their growing minds. Building brains, confidence AND race cars. :)”

“Thank you for your dedication! You truly made a difference in the lives of these kids!”
