Morning Camp, 8:30am to 12:00pm - Introduction to LEGO Robotics

This is not science fiction—it’s real robotics! In this camp, students will learn the basic design concepts required to create functioning robots. They will also learn about different types of robots and where they are used in the real world. During the last part of camp, students will be introduced to LEGO Mindstorm sets and will have the opportunity to design and build robots that can perform certain tasks to complete challenges. This camp will engage students in an exciting learning experience focusing on the critical technology and design principles that can lead to the careers of tomorrow!

Afternoon Camp, 12:30pm to 4:30 pm – Tetrix Robotics

In this advanced course students will take their robot engineering skills to the next level! They’ll learn how to design and manufacture robots using advanced engineering techniques, including the process of designing and manufacturing parts to build a robot using the Tetrix Building System (a system used by FIRST robotics middle school competition teams). Some experience with robotic design and engineering is encouraged but not required.
