JUNE 12 - 14, 2019 | 9:00 AM - 3:00 PM
In this introductory robotics summer camp, designed for students of ages 12-16, campers will be exposed to the ever growing world of robotics. Students will work in teams to build robots using the Vex VRC kit. Students will build a simplified version of the basic robot and learn about some of the basic concepts and ideas relating to robotics.
Throughout the 3 day camp, each student’s robot will be modified to complete challenges or games. Additionally, students will learn how to program their robots using a block-based programming language. This block-based programming language will allow students to easily add sensors to their robot; which will allow your robot to make decisions based off of the world around it.
Please note that campers will be working in groups each day of camp. As a group, campers will assemble their robot.
Camp runs 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. on Wednesday, June 12th, Thursday, June 13th and Friday, June 14th. Campers may arrive between 8:45 a.m. - 9 a.m. each day. Parents will need to come in and sign out their child each day.
Campers should bring a bagged lunch each day. Refrigeration will NOT be available.
