camp descriptions

Week 1: LEGO Robotics/Programming
Robotics will introduce campers to both mechanical engineering and computer programming. They will design and build robots using LEGO Mindstorms with the FIRST Lego League game using the visual programming interface to learn basic programming. Campers will learn to design and incorporate motors, sensors, and LEGOs to build and design robots. Campers will then program their robot to complete multiple challenges and tasks. Each camper will  be  introduced to 3D Printing and will be able to print something they can take home. We will also explore alternative energy sources such as solar, hydrogen, wind, etc. The campers will test these concepts using an alternative energy vehicle to demonstrate pros and cons. We have some fun activities planned throughout the week to keep the campers active. We are focusing on providing an activity where the campers will build something they can take home.

Week 2: VEX Robot Design & Build
Campers will learn how to design and build a robot by understanding what it takes to accomplish goals then defining the requirements.  The VEX Robotics program allows campers to learn simple assembly techniques to build a robot that can accomplish complex tasks.  Campers will learn these basic skills to design and build a VEX robot to satisfy a set of requirements.  They will test different ideas and choose what to include in their robot.  Some campers can focus on learning how to program the robots.  Each camper will be  introduced to 3D Printing and will be able to print something they can take home.  We will also explore alternative energy sources such as solar, hydrogen, wind, etc. The campers will test these concepts using an alternative energy vehicle to demonstrate pros and cons. We have some fun activities planned throughout the week to keep the campers moving around.  

Week 3: Operation Robot Arm
Campers will learn how to design and organize an assembly line using actual industrial robot arms.  They will learn how to accomplish the assembly line objectives efficiently.  Some campers will learn how to program the robots using Python.  Campers learn to work in groups to complete their assembly line design.  The teams will demonstrate their assembly line design to see who’s design is most efficient.  Each camper will be introduced to 3D Printing and will be able to print something they can take home.  We will also explore alternative energy sources such as solar, hydrogen, wind, etc. The campers will test these concepts using an alternative energy vehicle to demonstrate pros and cons. We have some fun activities planned throughout the week to keep the campers active.

Week 4: LED Light Electronics Project
Campers will learn about electronics and how electrical circuits operate. They will learn how to assemble electrical components on their very own LED light project. Each camper will learn how to design for 3D Printing to integrate into their LED light project. We will also explore alternative energy sources such as solar, hydrogen, wind, etc. The campers will test these concepts using an alternative energy vehicle to demonstrate pros and cons. We have some fun activities planned throughout the week to keep the campers active.  We are focusing on providing an activity where the campers will build something they can take home.
