LEGO MINDSTORMS ROBOTICS CAMP

LEGO Mindstorms is a terrific, easily accessible, introduction to robotics, and a lot of fun! Kids who learn robotics do something they love, learn something they need and dream about careers in science, technology, engineering, and math. 


Students will build a vehicle to be programmed to autonomously complete a series of tasks. They will learn to use a range of mechanical principles to adapt their vehicle to perform these tasks. 

Students need not have any previous experience with coding or programming. 

To use the BOOST, you will need an iPad with the LEGO boost app installed, and to use the EV3 they would need a computer with the MINDSTORMS software downloaded. 

The camp will be on July 12th-16th.

Grades 2-4  will meet from 9-11 am

Grades 5-8 will meet from 1-3 pm

The cost for the 10-hour camp is $200.00
