For Students Entering 5th – 7th Grade, Fall 2018
Join the growing maker culture in this advanced robotics camp. Kids move beyond LEGO and build a real robot – a robot called “mBot” that they take home to keep for further exploration! The week starts with an introduction to electronics hardware including an Arduino compatible microcontroller with integrated motor driver, a buzzer, and an infrared LED sensor. As the course progresses kids build their robots from the ground up while learning how to program the “brains” of their machines using a coding language similar to Scratch (or for advanced coders the Arduino IDE). By the end of the semester, each child takes home an autonomous roving vehicle that can navigate around obstacles and provide countless hours of enjoyment and further learning.
Additional Topics Include: Logic, Problem Solving, Electronics, Programming, Motors/Gears/Sensors
