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 high-school 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.
