EV3 Robotics &
Tech Maker Space
Design, build, and program robots with LEGO® MINDSTORMS EV3 sets. Use motors, sensors, and gears to create a robot dog, a line-follower, a walking quadruped, and an animatronic arm.
Gain team problem-solving skills through a day of First LEGO League-inspired challenges.
Plus, learn coding by designing fun games with Scratch® software, and gain experience with electronics by building a maker DIY project.
Five fascinating LEGO EV3-based creations which teach a thorough knowledge of robot building including use of sensors.
Daily robot-coding projects develop an increasing knowledge level.
End-of-week team-oriented challenges
Game making with Scratch coding
DIY Maker building skills, along with an introduction to electronics.
What's Unique about the Camp?
Robotics Team Skills
At the end of the week, campers get to experience what it is like to be on a robotics team as they work together to build and program a robot to complete First LEGO League-type challenges.
Campers create a variety of robots while exploring sensors and mechanisms. Then, they program the movements and display of each robot, so students can see in a tangible way how their code creates action. Code blocks are used and include loops and if-then conditionals.
Campers learn coding while designing games with Scratch, a visual programming language. Campers code with variables, loops, conditionals, and functions. Games include an Augmented Reality two-player pong game, where you integrate action in the game with each players' real-time physical movements.
Coding Skills from Game Making
Electronics and Maker Space
Campers explore circuits and electronics while creating 2 take-home LED projects.
These maker projects teach about electronic components and electricity flow, while also inspiring creativity and design.
