In our LEGO Robotics camp, students learn the world of computer programming and robotics using the latest technology from LEGO. Students build mechanical devices and program how they move and react on the computer using sensors.
Kids learn how to build and program a robot that walks, talks, sees, and hears. Set to a theme, robots are constructed to move, sense, and react to stimuli. The robots have sensors to detect light, sound, and touch. Students will use the computer to program how the robots moves and reacts to the sensors.

Who Can Attend
Made specifically for kids ages 9-13, LEGO Robotics camp is a great introduction into computer programming and robotics. No previous robotic or programming experience is needed.
What Will Kids Learn
Kids will learn robotics using LEGO Education’s Mindstorms NXT robotic technology.
This course combines robotics and programming into one, and lets kids turn LEGO bricks, gears and motors into vibrant, interactive space gadgets. Kids build lunar buggies, space cranes, and alien detection equipment with LEGO bricks, then program each to move with motors and react with sensors on the robot.
Mission to Mars Camp Adventure
Starting this summer 2013, our technology camps are themed adventures. This means our entire curriculum has been revitalized around a kid-friendly central topic. For summer 2013, our adventure is Mission to Mars!
Since we just landed on Mars, summer 2013 is appropriate that we focus on Space Exploration, and what better way than with a Mission to Mars! Video games will have planets, space ships, and aliens. LEGO robots will include land rovers that retrieve rocks from the Mars surface. Stop-motion movies will highlight past accomplishments like landing on the moon.
