Bruin Bots Camps

2017 Summer Camp Information: Coming Soon!

Previous Camps
Participants in a robotics camp for youth work on a robot.

The World of LEGO Engineering

Using creativity, imagination and LEGOs, you will apply beginning and advanced engineering techniques to build complex LEGO structures. Learn to brace LEGO structures for strength and function, understand gear ratios, and build solid, working creations that can do amazing things! This Robotic Engineering course is the first step in preparing students for participation in FIRST youth robotics competitions, and provides a great opportunity to enhance building and engineering abilities. This camp will engage students in 3rd – 5th grades in a fun and interactive learning experience that will help develop the engineers of tomorrow!

Monday – Thursday; 8:30 a.m. – Noon

robotics camps slideLEGO Robotics: The Obstacle Course Challenge

Are you up for a challenge? In this camp, you will learn the basic design concepts required to create functioning robots. We will explore different types of robots and how they are used in the real world. As part of this fun camp, we will introduce you to LEGO Mindstorm sets and you will have the opportunity to design and build robots that can perform the tasks required to complete an obstacle course that we have designed just for you! The camp will end with an obstacle course challenge, where everyone will compete to see which robot can complete challenges the fastest and earn the most points!

Monday – Thursday; 8:30 a.m. – 12:30 p.m.

DSC_7966Introduction to VEX Robotics

In this camp, you will be introduced to Vex IQ Robotics Systems to create robots that can grasp, lift, climb and pull. You will create robots that are driver controlled, plus robots that operate autonomously with the use of sensors. Just like a real engineer, campers will utilize the engineering design process of “Think-Do-Test” to create and program functioning robots that do amazing things. If you join us for this afternoon camp, you will be engaged in an exciting learning experience and focus on the critical technology and design principles that lead to the careers of tomorrow!

Monday – Thursday; 1 p.m. – 5 p.m.
