Robotics Programs For Kids

Stem Cafe combines LEGO® robotics, Java coding, and lots of imagination to provide a unique STEM learning experience for kids (ages 7-14) in the Largo/ Upper Marlboro Area. In our Robotics Labs, kids journey through an extensive, project­-based curriculum, earning bands of accomplishment with each promotion. All Labs are led by trained Mentors with a passion for education and a deep sense of play and fun. We operate year-round through Summer Camps, After School programs, and Classes. Girls and boys, alike, find Stem Cafe instantly engaging, social, and fun! BUILD. Start with LEGO MINDSTORMS®, then throw in an ever­expanding supply of advanced robotic sensors, unique building materials, and crafts. The engineering possibilities are endless. And, kids are solving problems, not assembling kits. CODE. Kids code their robots in Java, one of the world's most popular and powerful programming languages. Not only can robots do more advanced things with Java, kids are learning a highly transferable skill. PLAY. It's all about fun. Kids engage in product design, compete in tech challenges, play team games, and dive into open-ended creativity, all while making new friends. Project videos are captured and uploaded to our private Wonderwall where you can share them with family and friends.

AFTER SCHOOL

Stem Cafe after school Robotics Labs ensure kids of all abilities can be challenged and successful while advancing their powers of innovation. Each season, kids attend the Lab twice a week, for 90 minutes at a time. You can find our labs in our 2 centers in Burtonsville and the Largo Area. Please follow the link for more information.

SUMMER CAMPS

Our Summer Robotics Labs are a great way for girls and boys to try out robotics, design, and programming for the first time, or to build on skills already developed. Compared to our After School Labs, summer is more of the same: more time, more space, more projects, more materials, and more kids to hang with! We offer half-day, full-day and extended care camp options. And, week to week, campers are always doing something new. In Summer 2016, you can find our camps in Burtonsville and , Largo Center. Please follow the link for more information.

The Path To Mastery

Stem Cafe is completely hands-on and project-based, where kids work at their own pace. Our Inventor Mentors provide a small amount of direction at the beginning, then provide just-in-time instruction to introduce skills, ideas, and techniques as kids are ready. Within a framework, kids are empowered to choose what they work on and how they work on it. Kids earn Wands as they progress through Stem Cafe's level of competence. The Path to Mastery is a journey, not a race. We track where kids are throughout the year, and kids can pick up where they left off from season to season and year to year.

KNOWLEDGE NUGGETS

Knowledge Nuggets are bite-sized chunks of knowledge, skill, and experience within various subject areas essential to creating a well-rounded Imagineer in the modern world. They are designed to be taught on-demand as kids are ready to use them. Different Knowledge Nuggets are found at the different levels in the Path to Mastery, and students complete projects that demonstrate their use.

IMAGINEERING

The synthesis of imagination and engineering. An Imagineer is one who brings ideas to reality.

ACHIEVABLES

The Path to Mastery is different for everyone, but it has a common structure and a carefully thought out sequence of milestones that must be achieved to progress to each new level. Advancement is based on Lab time, completed projects, and earning WizChips in the Lab for EPIC behavior.

Levels are waypoints in the Path To Mastery. Leveling up is a big deal, and we award our own special Wizbands for each level accomplished.
