Ages 10-14
Half Day | 9am-12pm

Design, build, and program robots with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 sets. Use motors, sensors, and gears to create a self-driving vehicle, a walking robot, an animatronic arm, and line-follower.  Gain team problem-solving skills through First LEGO League-inspired challenges.   Then, learn coding by designing games using Scratch® software.  Learn about logic, loops, lists, and artificial intelligence as you make games to play in camp and at home.  End the week with a maker project which teaches about circuits and electronics.

Robotics Team Skills 

At the end of the week, campers get to experience what it is like to be on a robotics team as they work together to build and program a robot to complete First LEGO League-type challenges.

Campers create a variety of robots while exploring sensors and mechanisms. Then, they program the movements and display of each robot, so students can see in a tangible way how their code creates action.  Code includes loops and if-then conditionals.

Robotics Engineering

Campers learn coding while designing games with Scratch, a visual programming language.  Campers code with variables, loops, conditionals, and functions. Campers experiment with coding before they move on to text-based languages like Python and JavaScript.
