Day camps last 3 hours, from 10am to 1pm, with a snack in between.
Participants use LEGO Spike sets to build a robot, code it using Scratch, and then test and improve their creations. Three challenges are available. Each workshop consists of a challenge designed to teach students the concepts that make up basic robotics and mechanical engineering. Challenges are geared toward a student who has never programmed or built a robot before.
The Sumo-Bot Competition: This challenge is always a favorite: the participants will build their robot to wrestle an opposing robot out of a ring. Flippers and pushers are all allowed!
Line Follower Challenge: The camper’s robot must be programmed to follow a black line. The most precise instead of the fastest robot wins.
Maze Challenge: To level up their robotics skills, the campers will be asked to program their robot so that it completes a maze.
