About THis Camp
We've got a lab full of robots who keep asking to get to know our younger campers!
So we've designed a class specifically for our younger campers. In this Starter Lab, we introduce campers to programming and robotic principles by using our impressive array of codable robots. Campers love the hands-on activities and the immediate reward of creating the code and watching their robots complete the tasks.
Each day we introduce campers to programming principles by using four of our codable robots - Dash, Thymio, Cubelets, and Ozobots. After demonstrating the basic functionality, campers are challenged to explore the unique aspects of each codable robot and complete challenges. It's wonderful mix of robots, coding, and imagination that both girls and boys love. (Note: We do not use any Lego Mindstorms in our camp.)
