ABOUT

The LEGO® Robotics summer camp is an exploration into robotics. Students will delve into different aspects of robotics including design, construction, programming, and problem-solving. Using LEGO® Mindstorms® technology, students will make robots to complete various challenges like a maze, a game of tug-of-war, and a robot-sumo competition.

The activities offered in this camp will prepare students to continue participating in robotics programs throughout their schooling. After camp, they will be ready to participate in the FIRST® LEGO® League. Once students reach high school, good options include the FIRST® Robotics Competition and the FIRST® Tech Challenge.

Mentors and high school volunteers from FIRST® Robotics Competition Team 167 and FIRST® Tech Challenge Team 8696 will lead the camp. They will provide a comprehensive course in beginner robotics. Consequently, no experience in robotics is required in order to participate, but students with experience are still encouraged to take part in the camp. All equipment will be supplied by Iowa City Robotics.
