EV3 Robotics &

Tech Maker Space

Ages 8-12

Design, build, and program robots with LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 sets. Use motors, sensors, and gears to create a robot dog, a line-follower, a walking quadruped, and an animatronic arm.

 

Gain team problem-solving skills through a day of First LEGO League-inspired challenges. 

 

Plus, learn coding by designing fun games with Scratch® software, and gain experience with electronics by building a maker DIY project.

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 LEGOLeague-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. Scratch allows students to experiment with coding before they move on to text-based languages like Python and JavaScript.
