A Blog Post

The weather may be chilly here in mid-Missouri, but things are getting heated up with the Kaleidoscope Discovery Center’s scheduling! 

Our summer schedule is now posted up and you’re able to register for classes.

This summer The KDC is offering a variety of robotics and Future City programs. Students from 1st -8th grades can fuel their curiosity and explore their passion for STEM.


Here at the Kaleidoscope Discovery Center we’re committed to our mission of serving the local mid-Missouri areas. These classes will take place in Rolla, St. James, Vienna/Belle, Salem/Huston, and Waynesville/St. Robert. We want robotics and STEM education accessible and available to the local community.


Our robotics summer 2022 programs include:

What’s a WeDo?
1st – 4th Grades

In this class, students in grades 1-4 play with WeDos. These tabletop devices introduce programming and robotics concepts in a fun and engaging way.

What’s an EV3?
4th – 8th Grades

In this class, students in grades 4-8 are introduced to EV3s. These tabletop robotics are a fun way to engage older students and ignite their passion for robotics and STEM. EV3s are a step up from WeDos and have more complex motors and sensors.

In this project-based learning program, students research, design, and build cities of the future. These summer workshops are great ways for students to get their feet wet and learn more about the national Future City competition.
