With the OWI, Inc. Robotic Arm Edge 197 piece robot, campers will command the gripper to open and close, with a wrist motion of 120 degrees, an extensive elbow range of 300 degrees, base rotation of 270 degrees, base motion of 180 degrees, vertical reach of 15 inches, horizontal reach of 12.6 inches, and lifting capacity of 100g. WOW! Some of the added features include a search light design on the gripper and a safety gear audible indicator is included on all five gear boxes to prevent any potential injury or gear breakage during operation.
The second robot your camper will build is a multi-function solar powered robot from our partner Nasco called the SolarBot. If your children are glued to smart-phones, give them an opportunity to acquire solar power knowledge, learn about mechanical transmissions, and get them outside to play. Using a compact solar panel, these bots harness energy from the sun to power an electric motor. Campers can build a drummer that marches along, beating a drum, an armadillo robot that does somersaults, a bug that crawls on six legs, and more. Amazingly, you might find yourself engaged in conversation with your child, thanks to their newly acquired “expertise”!
Both of these robot kits allow campers to create and recreate: Put it together, take it apart, make another module…It’s all about flexibility, problem solving, and intelligent thinking. But luckily, kids don’t have to be advanced engineers to create and achieve. With both robots, they learn as they play!
If times allows, campers will learn how to solder on Friday with the help of the perennial favorite “Blinky Robot.” Your camper will have a blast learning how to build their robots- they’ll be SO proud to show off their hard work on Friday!
A $20 lab fee is included in the camp tuition due to the high costs of the robotics kits and other supplies for this camp.
Registration closes at 11:59pm Friday before this camp begins. For late registrations, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Late registration fee of $20 will apply.
