Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running LEGO Robotics Camp
Robot Academy hosts a variety of technology camps in several locations near Columbus (Dublin, Gahanna, Westerville, Grove City, Pickerington, and Marysville) plus Rio Grande. At these action-packed summer tech camps, kids age 4-14 design, build, and program working LEGO robots (using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT) and invent contraptions using 3D Modeling/Printing. It's the ultimate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) experience.
What's unique about our Summer STEM Camps? First of all, they're FUN! Our goal is to encourage and uplift our students, so we make sure every camp activity is ridiculously fun. Secondly, we're the only STEM camp that combines Inventing and 3D Printing with LEGO Robotics. We're also the only STEM camp that's taught by actual world champion robot-builders and technology teachers (all teachers have passed background checks). We have the best student:teacher ratio in the industry (6:1), and this one-on-one interaction with students helps us to customize camp activities to the skill level of individual students. Our students leave camp saying things like "this was the best day of my life!" and "I want to be an engineer!"
Is your child a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or Cub Scout? Cool! Our Full-Day summer camps fulfill the requirements for a robotics badge. Schedule a 2-hour BattleBot event at your meeting location to earn a Girl Scout STEM badge or Boy/Cub Scout Robotics badge.
Is your child interested in FIRST Lego League (FLL)? Many of our instructors and camp graduates have won international FLL championships. We work with ERCO (Educational Robotics of Central Ohio) to form FLL Teams for our camp graduates. Our 5-Day, Full-Day camp prepares prospective FLL students for success by providing them with a solid foundation in robotics, inventing, and teamwork (the three core judging categories of FLL). Camp graduates are invited to a separate meeting in August where we plan for the FLL season and form teams.
