EV3 Robotics &
Tech Maker Space
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.
This specific camp is offered only for

Five fascinating LEGO EV3-based creations which teach a thorough knowledge of robot building including use of sensors.
Daily robot-coding projects develop an increasing knowledge level.
End-of-week team-oriented challenges
Game making through coding with Scratch
DIY Maker building skills, along with an introduction to electronics.
What's Unique about the Camp?
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.
Coding Skills from Game Making
Electronics and Maker Space
Campers explore circuits and electronics while creating a take-home LED project.
This maker project teaches about electronic components and electricity flow, while also inspiring creativity and design.
