Robotics Camp 2009 for students ages 9 and up
In the brand new Paul Scribner Robotics Lab at GVS
This hands-on summer program will immerse you in the exciting and popular world of robotics. Students will learn about topics such as gear ratios, locomotion and energy as they construct robots with the new Lego Mindstorms NXT and VEX Robotics kits. During the week students will learn how to design, build, program and control robots while putting them through a series of real-world challenges. This camp is ideal for students who love to build things with their hands and want to learn more about mechanical and programming concepts. This camp will challenge you to think critically and work with others to solve problems. Whether you are brand new to programming and robotics or already have experience and are an aspiring engineer, this camp will allow you to increase your knowledge while having an amazing time along with other students with similar interests.
