ABOUT

The Junior BOTS summer camp is an exploration into robotics. Students will delve into different aspects of autonomous machines — design, construction, programming, and problem-solving. Mentors and highschool volunteers from FIRST Robotics Team 167 will lead the camp.

No experience is required in robotics. Camp instructors will provide a comprehensive course in beginner robotics using LEGO Mindstorms. At the end of the week, students will be able to complete various challenges such as a maze, a battle-bots simulation, and tug-of-war.

For students that are interested in continuing robotics, FIRST Junior Lego League and FIRST Lego League are a good option after this camp.
