LEGO® Motor Madness with Intro to NXT® Robotics

For Ages 6-9: NEW PROJECTS AND ACTIVITIES each year!

Have fun building LEGO® creations which you power with motors and battery packs!

Students design a variety of vehicles and creatures that use gears, motors and
pulleys for speed and motion. Projects include a convertible sports car, helicopter, friendly frog, minifigs-in-motion ride, and a moped scooter.

In the afternoon, students work in 2-person teams, exploring robotics as they build projects using the LEGO® Mindstorms
NXT® microcomputer and sensors.
There is no programming by students
in this class, instead their robots use
pre-created programs to perform actions
and respond to the environment. Projects include a line-following bot, a conveyor belt,
a maze-solving robot and more!

LEGO summer camp 6 - 9 years old

PLEASE NOTE: Students have their own kit to work on alone throughout most of the day, but do team up with a partner for the robotics projects. Each student builds a part of the robot and then the partners connect the two sections to complete the robot. It's a chance to develop some team skills and meet another LEGO® enthusiast.

Students take home the following:

Cool Camp t-shirt and a LEGO® item. Students do not take home the LEGO® projects or pieces from the class.

What's new if my child took LEGO® Motor Madness last year?

We have five new motorized projects in the morning, plus three new NXT® robotics projects in the afternoon. We also have a new Friday afternoon event where students join teams to play exciting LEGO® and skill challenges.

What's different between this and the other LEGO® building camps?

The LEGO® Motor Madness camp is a beginning course, which features an emphasis on building motorized vehicles and structures, plus an introduction to robotics. By comparison, the Master Builders, Extreme-Tronics
and Technovators camps feature more advanced LEGO® building, and either structural engineering, electronics or game design in the afternoons.
