This program is for students who are ready to take their scientific and robotic interest to the next level and truly understand the science that goes into robotics. In this Robotics program, campers will participate in science-focused experiments involving heat, energy, temperature, force, motion, and light. Students will become more knowledgeable about: the Lego Robotics EV3 Mindstorms software, physical science and engineering principles, Beebots, and coding. And as our students learn, they will also be honing their ability to reach a goal in a team setting.
This camp focuses on:
- Developing and elevating skills in building and programing robots using EV3 Lego Mindstorms System and Beebots
- Working independently and in teams to foster cooperation and teamwork
- Using imaginative thought and critical thinking skills to solve complex problems
Mon-Fri, 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
