Beginning Lego Robotic Programming
Summer camp for 9- to 14-year-olds
Beginning LEGO Robotics Programming will be offered in summer 2015 for children ages 9 to 14 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.
Instructors from WCTC's Information Technology programs will lead the camps.
