This program will help your young engineer develop their interest, skills and knowledge in the fascinating world of robots! Campers aged 7-10 will learn the basics about building robots and will be introduced to motors, gears and sensors using easy to program mini computers to plan, test and modify sequences of instructions from a variety of real life robotic behaviours.
This is a great way to introduce your camper to the world of Robotics with campers in their own age group as they will learn how to plan, build and maneuver their robots with various assembly blocks that contain special circuits such as CPUs, contact sensors, and IR sensor blocks. Programming of the robots is done with a card-reader system and it is specially developed to foster campers' creativity and activate their brain by assembling robots. After building their robot in their own small teams they will eventually lead up to more difficult challenges like line races, maze escape and even drag racing. No experience is required as our qualified Appleby teachers and camp instructors will teach the concepts, including building computer skills and programming fundamentals in a fun and interactive setting. Many integral mechanical engineering concepts are acquired in this Robotics camp, and important teamwork skills are developed.
The program also features balanced days with recreational activities outdoors, cooperative games, recreational swim time and also includes a nutritious lunch, with hot selections. Robots built by campers will enter an electrifying competition
and demonstration at the end of the camp and interested parents/guardians and friends are welcome to share in the excitement each Friday.
