Themed Entertainment Classes
Ride On!
TEA Logo

We are proud to be a member of the Themed Entertainment Association, an organization of creative professionals that design theme parks, roller coasters, attractions and compelling spaces. We collaborate with several member organizations to develop courses that introduce students to the world of theme park and roller coaster design. One of many examples is a course where students stage a miniature "Electrical Parade" by combining LEGO Robotics, programmable RGB LEDs, Arduino microcontrollers, and music. Please contact us for more information.

Robotics & Electronics Classes
Wide Range of Classes, and More on the Way!

Our current robotics classes offer many different ways to explore the fascinating world of robotics. We offer classes using a variety of kits, including LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT, LEGO WeDo™, LeTry, Parallax BoeBot, robotic arms, and many more. We are also completing the curriculum and testing out several new robotics courses that we know will be a big hit with kids, combining electronics, color, sound & music, choreography and sensors. We will soon be offering access and training of telepresence robots and we will be introducing the new Edison robots. Be sure to check out our current offerings, above, and contact us if you would like further information.
