Robotics And Beyond in New Milford will offer a variety of programs in the coming weeks.
Before- and after-school classes will begin in early September.
Topics may include Kerbal Space Program, introduction and intermediate CAD and 3D Printing, programming in C++, HTML and/or Python, circuit design and soldering, and microcontrollers (Arduino).
The organization is collaborating with Education Without Walls to offer classes specially scheduled for home-schooled students.
The calendar runs from September to May and topics include pre-engineering, circuits and electrical engineering, programming in C-Sharp, topics in technology, and physics problem solving.

The organization is forming its First Lego League for youths ages 9 to 14.
Interested persons are asked to email FLL@roboticsandbeyond.org.
A Minecraft game and skills help night for youths ages 7 to 14 will be held Aug. 28 from 6 to 9 p.m. for $30.
Registration is open for after-school Robotics and topics in STEM.
Participants may choose from Tuesday or Thursday classes and attend for two hours between 2:30 and 6 p.m.
New Milford school buses will transport students from all schools, except Northville, to the 30 Bridge St. office.
Students will receive two hours of problem solving, learning new skills, interaction with peers and fun using various materials, electronics and computers like LEGO robotics, graphic design software, circuit boards, programming in various languages, PVC pipes, flight simulators, electronic equipment for dissection, or the student’s own project such as for science fair projects.
Participants will have the opportunity to progress to higher level programming languages, electronics or other projects.
New students will receive individualized help.
Students who have participated in a prior After School or Summer Camp program with us will be encouraged to pursue more advanced projects based on their interests, again with plenty of guidance.
