This hands-on camp will introduce students to the exciting field of Robotics. Using the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT modular robot system, campers will complete a series of team-based “design, build, and program” challenges including:

  • Construction of LEGO battle bots
  • Designing and building a robot that responds to external stimulus using touch, light, and ultrasonic sensors
  • Designing and building a soccer bot
  • Designing and building an ultrasonic imaging bot

Basic mechanical engineering and programming concepts will be covered throughout the course. Family and friends will be invited to campus to see their student participate in a robotics team competition at the end of the week. T-shirts and certificates will be provided.

Please note: This program is designed for students who have little to no prior experience in Robotics or Programming.
