Lego BattleBot Building/Programming Camp (PM Camp)
Today’s kids master computers at an early age and are ready for the smiling robot that can be operated with the touch of a remote control or with simple drag-and-drop Scratch programming. Building LEGO implements on the robot to accomplish fun activities inspires the young engineer’s natural curiosity and learning thru play. Students have fun with a LEGO Robot BattleBot championship, where student-made robots “battle to the death”. With the help of our instructors and step-by-step engaging videos, students will learn to build and code BattleBots using Scratch programming language. We run the BattleBot rounds until all campers win at least one round. The robot is available for purchase so that the student can keep the robot that they built during camp. Returning students can bring their robot back to add the LED Matrix Expansion set for small fee (see info below). Students also complete robot challenges to earn points to win trophies in order to reward their achievements. Instructors provide individual help to make sure all students win trophies and are happy campers.
New this summer: Returning students who purchased an Arduino LEGO Robot in the past can bring their robot back to add the LED matrix expansion set for $7. It is versatile because students can program to customize the expressions, texts and weather reports on it. All students will build and program the LED matrix during camp. For an additional fee of $7, students returning with a robot can bring it home. Students purchasing a robot for this session will receive the LED matrix at no additional charge. All students will be working with the LEGO Robot and expansion set whether or not they purchase a robot to take home.
