Description

Explore the world of robotics using Lego Mindstorms. You and a partner will work with computer scientists to build your robot on the first day. Then you will learn computer programming skills that will allow you to control it. Once you get the hang of it, you will learn some more advanced commands that will allow you to program your robot to do even more cool stuff like navigate mazes, explore the world, and even battle other robots. Learn how to use sensors to create an even smarter robot. Compete in some friendly competitions throughout the camp. On the final Friday you and your partner will demo your robot in the camp showcase.
