Arduino Robotics and Rock Climbing: Ages 11-16
This session is always a hit and now it comes with a the option to keep your robot!
This educational robot can be compared to a LEGO™ Spike Prime, which is valued at $385.
Robots are very engaging for campers. They can hold a child's attention much longer than a typical toy. And now that your kid gets to keep the Arduino robot after camp is finished, the fun and learning can continue long after this summer.
We teach hardcore programming and electronics with fun wheeled robot vehicles. Campers learn to make their robots drive in patterns, detect objects by bumping into them, and by "seeing" with infrared eyes.
The Arduino system has taken the maker community by storm. Artists, designers, students, and anyone who wants to make something in their world a little smarter and cooler can do it with an Arduino. With this system, you can have your houseplants send a Tweet when they need water, make a laser harp, or even build a fire-breathing dragon robot. But first, you need to learn how to program one. That is one of the main objectives of this camp. Programming is in C++ and/or Python.
In addition to the robotics activities, campers are trained in rock climbing safety and knot tying, before taking two afternoon field trips to Planet Rock on Tuesday and Thursday. As with all Rocks and Robots programs, we go outside several times a day for inclusive group games and free play.
In addition to the robotics activities, campers are trained in rock climbing safety before taking two afternoon field trips to Planet Rock on Tuesday and Thursday. On these days, the camp is extended until 5:00 pm and pickup is at Planet Rock
Times: 9:00 to 3:30 (M,W,F), 9:00 to 5:00 (T,Th)
