Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running LEGO Robotics Camp

Robot Academy hosts a variety of technology camps in locations around Columbus, for example, Dublin, Gahanna, New Albany, and Westerville.  At these action-packed summer tech camps, kids age 4-16 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.

Which camp style would benefit your child most?

5 Full Days (9:30a-4:30p): $495

Lego BattleBot Engineering, Invention and 3D Printing MegaCamp
Our most popular option for budding engineers who love LEGO. This camp combines our 5-day morning and afternoon camps with a supervised lunch break in-between. Students win trophies, medals and ribbons to reward their achievements. Learn 3D Printing, Compete in an epic BattleBot championship, practice EV3 programming, and invent new robot designs. Everything you need to become a Lego Robot Master Builder!

Register for Ages 4-9 Register for Ages 9-16

5 Mornings (9:30p-12:30p): $249

Lego Robotics InventionLAB and 3D Printing Camp
Bring your ideas to life! We teach 'rapid prototyping', a technique that involves quickly building prototypes of invention ideas using cardboard, Legos or 3D printers. Kids design and build custom inventions with the help of their instructor and then present their prototypes to a Shark Tank panel (like on the TV show!) Kids enjoy presenting killer pitches to the judges with the help of their new friends and reaping the rewards (we give the students a lot of tips and talk them through their pitches in advance to make sure they're successful). Our instructors have won international invention competitions, so your kids are learning from the best.

5 Afternoons (1:30p-4:30p): $249

Lego BattleBot Building/Programming Camp
This camp features our famous BattleBot championship, where student-made robots "battle to the death". With the help of world champion instructors, students will learn to program BattleBots in the Mindstorms EV3 language using sensors and logic. Beginners (and younger students) will master basic programming, while experienced programmers (and older students) will learn more advanced techniques for ensuring the success of their BattleBots. Bring your camera to the award ceremony to capture the moment of your child winning a medal for individual hands-on accomplishments at the camp.

Register for Ages 4-9 Register for Ages 9-16

2 Afternoons (1:30p-4:30p): $125

BattleBot Camp
Kids build and program Lego robots to compete in a BattleBot championship! The robots will battle “to the death”, and the designers of the "last robot standing” for each round will win ribbons. No experience necessary - we teach kids everything they need to know to put together a winning BattleBot. Students will also complete individual building and programing activities.
