Rockin’ Robotics: Creativity Abound

Rockin’ Robotics: Creativity Abound

For Students Entering Grades 4th To 8th Fall 2017

At Launch’s newest robotics camp, we supply the tools and our campers supply the creativity! Kids move beyond LEGO and build real robotic machines – robots they take home to keep for further exploration. Using a programmable Hummingbird Duo Microcontroller as the brain, campers set off and use their imagination to add various motors, sensors, LEDs, wheels, and body parts to their designs. Once they have created a moving horse, or perhaps a speedy racecar (or whatever they imagine!), campers bring their creations to life by using Snap!, Python, or Java to code their Hummingbird Duos so that their robots do whatever they desire. Most exciting, each day begins with a theme or goal and ends with different robotic designs!

NOTE: Full-day Launch camps engage children mentally as well as physically. Half of each day is spent working on theme based projects and challenges. The other half of each day is spent participating in a combination of high energy games and STEM exploration activities. Campers go outdoors and should come with sneakers and sunscreen pre-applied. For additional information please refer to the Sample Camp Day schedule found on the Summer Camps page of this website.
