Space Santa


This amazing after-school program will challenge your students in teamwork, leadership, and decision making and motivate them in science, technology, math, and engineering (STEM).

Elf Trainees work as a team to build and test their own skills in air, land challenges. The program culminates with spirited contests as trainees
test the elf robots they spent two days building, programming, and testing. 

The curriculum includes an educational demonstration, movie or show in Santa’s Workshop hosted by the Red Sled Santa Foundation.


Learn engineering, programming, and wireless control concepts using LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 technology.

  • Put these concepts to the test as you design, build, program, and pilot animatronic Elf robots.
  • Use series circuits to build your own LED flashlight that you can take home.
  • Create, program, and operate Santa’s flying mini sleigh.
