$249.00

Hands-On Engineering to Help Around the House!

Turn your child’s love of LEGO into a passion for STEM (science, technology, engineering and math). Instructors inspire students to become engineers, programmers, inventors and entrepreneurs.  Our founders won the First Lego League World Championship two years in a row (first place in robotics out of 10,000 teams) and have also won numerous national invention and science competitions. Robot Academy opened over 14 years ago and has taught thousands of young students. Many of our camp graduates have gone on to win their own international championships.  It’s the ultimate STEM experience.

This camp includes:

  • INTERACTIVE: Personalized instruction blended with social time and self-paced building/programming time means your student will be happy and engaged throughout the week.  Instructor to student ratio is 1 to 6 with 1 to 1 attention when needed.
  • AWARD CEREMONY: Students build and program robots with the help of Virtual Robot Geniuses. When needed, students receive individual attention in a breakout room to ensure success. Students love earning points towards trophies by completing robotics challenges. The Award Ceremony is on the last day during the last 30 minutes. Our goal is to build confidence in every student by celebrating their accomplishments.
  • T-Shirt: Students receive a Robot Academy t-shirt with their trophy after camp.
  • Gift Certificate mailed to you
  • AGES: Students grouped according to age and experience. Jr and Sr camps at different times:  Jr Camp (7 to 9 years old) and Sr Camp (10 to 15 years old).  Students under 7 years old can participate in Jr camp with a parent available to help.

Open for Registration!

INTERACTIVE: Personalized instruction blended with social time and self-paced building/programming time means your student will be happy and engaged throughout the week.  Instructor to student ratio is 1 to 6 with 1 to 1 attention when needed.  Fun video demonstrations (accessed on-demand via an online portal) empower kids to learn real building and programming techniques on their schedule. Access to the Robot Guy (two-time FIRST LEGO League world champion) and Virtual Robot Geniuses for troubleshooting help enables kids to succeed with their creations. Kids learn to become self-motivated inventors, designers, developers, and engineers. There is truly no better way to prepare them for a love of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

CREATIVE PROBLEM SOLVING: Our mission is to help kids develop their skills with LEGO robotics to the point where it can become true creative outlet, a profoundly educational hobby/obsession, and a path to future learning in STEM fields. We’ve seen this happen for hundreds of kids, and we know that your student can get there too. We’ve devised a system of Levels to help support students’ development, and to make the process fun. This Level system also makes it easy to pick up where you left off when you show up for a second week of LEGO Robot Camp.

FUN WITH FRIENDS: We allow one registration per robot/computer/household/age group (Jr or Sr) since the Instructors are helping your child successfully program and build the robot. Your child can have siblings and friends work together on one robot/computer for one registration free. If two computers, then two registrations. Invite friends and/or relatives that work well with your child (and you have not been social distancing from family). When camp starts, your child will then be put into a breakout room with instructor(s) and a small group of students their age to allow for interaction. We have kids from around the world! They will be asked to do a LEGO Welcome Challenge while all the students are admitted. Please make sure your child has a bin of LEGOs as well as a LEGO robot when camp starts every day.

KEYS TO SUCCESS: Our programs teach kids how to become real-world problem-solvers and innovators using the LEGO Mindstorms robotics set. Our instructors, called Robot Geniuses, will be working with your child(ren) interactively to build and program their robot to do their work for them around the house (clean their room, feed the pet/stuffed animal, etc). We are SO excited to teach your child creative problem solving. Our Robot Geniuses have won Robotics and Invention competitions and are our Robotics Rock Stars. It is required that your child have a LEGO Mindstorms or LEGO Arduino set so that they can build awesome robot to do their work for them (it is worth the investment). Your child can rent a robot from us if you live in Ohio.

There are different options for the robot required for the camp:

  • New Release: LEGO MINDSTORMS Robot Inventor
  • LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 number 31313
  • LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT (older set on eBay or Craig’s List or borrow from friend)
  • LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Core Set 5003400 at LEGO Education
  • Rental Set:  LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 Robot Rental available for $20 per week plus $350 deposit (returned when kit returned). Please email Gail@robot-academy.com to schedule pickup in Dublin or Worthington, Ohio or shipped to your house (renter pays shipping charges).

AWARD CEREMONY:  Our goal is to build confidence in every student by celebrating their accomplishments.  Students love earning points towards trophies and prizes by completing robotics challenges. The Award Ceremony is on the last day during the last 30 minutes. We will ship the Holiday package (before camp) and the trophies (after camp) within Continental United States. International countries may need to pay extra for shipping.

SCHEDULE:

Introduction (15 minutes) The Robot Guy (Bill Nye the Science Guy of LEGO Robotics) video explains new challenge for the day with fun presentations. The Robot Guy and Coach Vawter celebrate students success from the previous day with students who demo their robot or play video of robot.

Breakout Session (1.5 hour) Students build and program the LEGO Robotics Challenge and receive troubleshooting help from instructor. Group collaborates challenges with problem-solving. Campers complete programming and building of robot to solve problems around the house with the robot. Students video the robot or take pictures to show the class. Students earn points towards prizes and medals as they build and program robots to accomplish problem-solving missions around the house such as feed the pet or pick up LEGOs. An instructor is available for one on one help for troubleshooting
