Introduction to Robotics and Coding – Level 1-1 (Week of July 20th)

$149.00

This week is all about ROBOTICS as campers build, design, and code a variety of robots! Campers will use RoboRobo sets (not included with camp tuition) that have building components such as metal frames, plastic frames, beams, nuts and bolts and will learn how to create functionality in their build using electronic components such as a CPU board, IR and contact sensors, LEDs, buzzers, and motors. Programs are written on the computer using a block-based programming environment and downloaded to the robot. Campers will learn how to program robots to react to sensor data, drive motors and control robot behavior. Over the course of the 5-day camp, students build robots of increasing complexity and functionality – each project teaches a new level of mechanical and programmatic design. All students are challenged to modify their designs to help them increase their knowledge. They will debug and troubleshoot software and hardware problems to make their robots work as designed. During the Level 1-1 session, campers will build the following robots: EasyBot, House bot, Helicopter Bot, RaceBot, and Control Bot.

Age: 9~12

July 20th – July 24th, Monday ~ Friday
