Get excited about robotics with this unique camp designed for students with no experience in robotics or programming. Using hands-on building material and basic programming, students will discover the world of robotics through interactive learning with Mindstorm Robots. Assemble mini-robots using a microcontroller, multiple sensors, and servo motors. Tell the robot what to do by programming commands using Mindstorm programming language. After mastering the basics of building and programming robots in this action-packed camp, continue on your robotic journey with our Legendary LEGO League competition preparation class with engineering designs, obstacle courses and advanced programming camps! Co-sponsored with Learning Through Robotics.
