Advanced Robotics with LEGO EV3
Age Group: rising 4th-7th graders
Cost: $325/ week (Mon-Fri 9-4pm)
Using LEGO’s EV3 Education Set, campers are introduced to robotics with Legos and the Lego Mindstorms Software. Campers will work as scientists and engineers as they progress though a set of lessons, challenges, and projects that fully integrate science, technology, engineering, and math concepts while prompting creative problem solving, communication, and teamwork.
Campers will learn the basics of gears to help them apply physical science and math principles to build effective robots. They will also progress through a series of missions in which they investigate, observe, calculate, and apply their knowledge to solve specific tasks. Campers will use the different sensors and motors in the EV3 Education Set to program their robots to solve different challenges such as following a line, using a touch sensor and learning about sound using an ultrasonic sensor. Campers will learn the basic blocks of programming such as loop blocks, wait blocks, switch blocks and movement blocks.
Our engineers will conduct research as they explore, plan, and develop challenges as engineers and scientists. Campers will learn the basics of programming and algorithms using the software to program their robots in a week of robotics and programming!
Registration closes at 11:59pm Friday before this camp begins. For late registrations, please email us at email@example.com. Late registration fee of $20 will apply.
