Beginning Lego Robotic Programming

Summer camp for 10- to 13-year-olds

Beginning LEGO Robotics Programming will be offered in summer 2016 for children ages 10 to 13 to inspire their imaginations and challenge their minds. Young participants will use LEGO bricks to explore robotics, mechanical systems, electronics and programming. Campers will work in teams of two with the same robots used in the First LEGO League competition. They will discover basic concepts including EV3 interface; MOVE, MOTOR and RESET blocks; turning; math for the robot; and other resources. Advanced concepts will also be discussed, including light sensors, program control and touch sensors.

Four sections of the robotics camps will be held Mondays through Thursdays during the following dates and times:
