Introduction to Robotics (Robotics Programming Age 9-13)
Robotics fundamentals for middle schoolers! Students will learn to build and code robots using a block-based programming language. Teaching is done from the very basics, so no previous programming experience is required. Students will learn robotics concepts like motor control and using sensors. Various joint motors, grippers, wheels, distance sensors, touch sensors and motions sensors will be used. The classes will progress from simple tasks like reacting to touch/motion sensors to complex projects like navigating obstacles while picking up objects.
The camp is for absolute beginners without any exposure to coding! Or the returning students who want to more practice with the robots! For making this a full day camp, please add the other half day camp also (which may not be related to this topic). In this case, kids can be dropped off in the morning at 10 am and picked up at 4 pm. Please send the lunch with students (lunch is NOT provided as part of the camp).
