Introduction to LEGO Robotics

Grades 3-5

 Monday-Thursday  l  July 6-9  l  8:30 am-12:30 pm  l  $99

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!

Tetrix RoboticsBruin Bots Practice Fall 2013

Grades 6-9

Monday-Thursday  l  July 13-16  l  8:00 am-12:00 pm  l  $99

In this camp 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). Students will also be introduced to the new Tetrix Prime kit that offers new features and exciting options for bringing robotic creations to life. Some experience with robotic design and engineering is encouraged, but not required.

Programming with Robot C 

Grades 6-9

Monday-Thursday  l  July 13-16  l  12:30 pm-4:30 pm  l  $99  Image of a computer keyboard and a hand on a computer mouse.

In this exciting camp students will actually learn to program in the C++ language to control robots, allowing them to complete all kinds of tasks. After learning the basics of RobotC, students will each be assigned a computer so they can put in to practice all their new programming skills using virtual and real robots. This camp is designed for any student that wants to learn programming, and is ideal for FIRST Robotics team members that want to learn RobotC to program their robot during the competition season.
