LEGO ROBOTICS (GRADES 2 AND 3)
July 5 - 8, 2022 (No camp July 4)
Full Day (9am – 4pm)
Exploration Camps are designed to give our campers a chance to lean in and start to deep dive into topics, while still maintaining a camp like feel. Campers will spend time 6 feet apart in our computer lab, equipped with state of the art air filtration systems, but also have time outside- either in problem solving circles, or in “camp breaks” where they will have camp adventures- swim, play games, and picnic lunch. Come experience the best that camp can offer!
Code Wiz Robotics camp will use LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education. EV3 is a hands-on, cross-curricular class that engages students by teaching them to design, build and program their robots while helping them develop essential skills such as creativity, critical thinking, collaboration, and communication.
Programming is done by dragging and dropping icons into a line to form commands allowing students to build simple programs, and then easily and intuitively build on their skills until they are developing complex algorithms.
Kids will learn to use the Gyro, Ultrasonic, Color and Touch sensors in their programs while learning the building blocks of programming such as sequencing, loops, conditionals, events and Object Oriented Programming Principles.
Please note: This camp must enroll to minimum enrollment in order to run. Indoor camps are likely to require mask wearing. Campers in this program will get to visit the pool a couple of days a week- parents will be notified which days so they can send swim gear.
