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
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
a maze-solving robot and more!
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
projects. Each student builds a part of the robot and then the partners
the two sections to complete the robot. It's a chance to develop some
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,
and Technovators camps feature more advanced LEGO®
building, and either structural engineering, electronics or game design in
