2017 Spring Break Camps Information (Grades 3-5)
Sumo-Bots: The Ultimate Battle!
8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, April 3-6
Back by popular demand, this high energy and exciting robotics camp is now offered for our younger future engineers. Under the direction of KCC’s Bruin Bots coach, students will work together using Lego NXT kits to design robots that are sturdy, nimble, and strong enough to push their opponents out of the ring. Teams will spend the first part of the week learning about and designing their robot, then they will program it to use sensors to drive autonomously inside the ring as the Sumo’s start their battle! The week will end with a competition where students can show off their warriors and battle to the end. May the best bot win!
Another tried and true camp being offered to younger students this spring is the Speer Racer Experience.
In this camp students will learn to not just design Lego NXT drag racers that look cool, but that that are also engineered to withstand the inevitable crashes and obstacles they will meet on their way to the finish line. Being fast isn’t enough – to be a good engineer you need to be able to build creations that both perform well and are structurally sound. Before Speed Racer is ready to peel out, students will need to understand the gear ratios, aspects of structural design, and NXT brick programming options that will best help them win the day! The camp will end with elimination drag races between teams until only one is left as the checkered flag is waved. On your mark, get set – go built a bot!
Best deal: Take both Sumo-Bots and Speed Racer Experience for a total reduced rate of $199!
8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Thursday, April 3-6
Students participating in both camps should bring their own lunch; KCC will provide a supervised location between camps for a lunch break.
