ABOUT

The LEGO® Robotics 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 Competition Team 167 and FIRST® Tech Challenge Team 8696 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® LEGO League Jr. and FIRST® LEGO League are good options after this camp. Once students reach high school, they can opt to join FIRST® Tech Challenge or FIRST® Robotics Competition.
