Camp Descriptions

 

Fun with Robots Camp

We are going to program with EV3, NXT, Sphero, and other robots while learning programming skills, logic skills, and plenty of additional science and fun! We are going to do some crazy building and programming, build Sumo style bots, and have a Sumo competition at the end of the week between our robots. We will vary the day with indoor and outdoor activities, both science related and just plain fun!

 

LEGO Robot Camp

Have fun building with LEGO! We will work on LEGO Mindstorm robots creating some different designs than our traditional FIRST LEGO League robots. We will start with some fun engineering challenges and move on to programming. Campers will come up with challenges that they want to tackle with their new design!  Plenty of time for LEGO building challenges and other engineering challenges!

Science of Star Wars Camp

 

Come explore the science behind Star Wars as we learn how light sabers could work, if a Death Star could really destroy a planet, and how space travel would affect your body. We will dive into the emerging science of the future as well as the science all around us at it relates to the universe of Star Wars!

We will make our own lightsabers, learn to levitate like a Jedi, and make our own X-Wing fighter.

Plenty of additional science and robot activities will round out the week, plus a surprise visit from a Star Wars character or two!

Come dressed as your favorite character or come as you are.

Welcome to Robotics Camp!   This program is an ideal opportunity to experience what FIRST Robotics is all about, learn more about engineering, programming, and design and have fun while doing it!robot7_IMG_0251_ag

Our program for kids entering grades K-6 is a one week program based to on the LEGO Mindstorm program.  The kids will have the opportunity to work with the Mindstorm robots, and have fun with other STEM based activities. We will offer plenty of outside time to allow them to burn off energy and conduct cool outdoor experiments.

This class will be broken up as to interest and ability. Plenty of activities for shorter attention spans!

Our older kids program, for kids entering grades 7 through 12 is a two week program, though you may opt for a one week session.  This camp will allow the kids to build their own FIRST ROBOTICS Competition style robot and drive them in a field environment.  The campers will get to experience design, CAD, building, and programming of a full size robot.

 

Please feel free to contact us regarding the grade/age separation of the camps. If you have a child who you think would enjoy a camp but doesn’t fit within the grade requirements, please let us know! We are happy to meet with you and your child to see where their abilities, attention, and interest levels would fit into our programs.
