Formerly Robot Mechanic
Cost: $295/week (Full day)
Your camper will complete tons of great building projects with our fully hands-on robot builds! Your camper will build the Robotic ARM Edge and the Dodeca 12 in 1 Solar Hydraulic Robot. If time allows, our Robot Engineers will also learn to solder when they build the Blinky Robot!
The Robotic Arm Edge is the perfect learning tool for understanding the inner workings of a robot that is identical in nature to the robots being used in industry today. With Robotic Arm Edge, command the gripper to open and close, 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 gear breakage during operation.
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!
The Dodeca 12 in 1 SolarHydraulic Robot has a gear box that is a true dual threat as it is powered by direct sunlight, and a hydraulic transmission. With the Dodeca, children are able to actively learn two forms of alternative energy while they create and use their infinite imagination. With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies.
Dodeca has 12 exciting forms that can be separated in two animated building modes: Automotive (Buggy, Obstacle Avoiding Rover, Excavator, Forklift) and Animals (Elephant, Pterosaurs, Monkey, Ostrich, T-Rex, Crocodile, Scorpion, Dog-Walker).
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!
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.
