The camp will be offered on these two dates at the university’s Detroit campus:

  • Monday, July 11 through Friday, July 15: 8 am to 3:30 pm
  • Monday, July 25 through Friday, July 29: 8 am to 3:30 pm

Lunch is provided! Cost is $25 a student. Financial assistance is available for families who qualify. The class is held at Cleary University’s Durfee Innovation Society, located at 2470 Collingwood Street in Detroit.

“Critical Thinking with Legos introduces science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) to middle school students through fun, exciting hands-on learning,” reports LaTasha Ellis, education center coordinator for Cleary University’s Detroit campus. Lego camp day also includes an arcade and some outside play activities, “all with critical thinking principles applied in creative ways,” Ellis explains. “Students will gain real world problem-solving experiences through a guided, hands-on global robotics program.”

Cleary University Professor Adam Mayhew, the brain child of this unique program, serves as the class instructor. He is an associate professor of philosophy and business ethics at the university.
