Robotics and Programming
This page gives a detailed description of camps that teach Robotics and Programming using MINDSTORMS Robots or 3D printing. Please see links to the right for our Minecraft and Programming, TechnoScience, Science only and Art programs.
These are described below.
New this year! Bring your child’s imagination to life with Dremel Idea Builder and Auto Desk Tinker CAD.
Using problem based learning our students will have the power to build their imaginations!
With Tinker CAD, students will be able to create, move, rotate and scale their abstract models before printing. The software is intuitive and easy to learn. They will see the tangible results as they refine and print their 3D design.
To encourage their critical thinking, students will be able learn the science and engineering behind projects created in the camp.
At the end of camp, the students will be able to take home a copy of all of their designs and at least one of their favorite 3D models.
Introduction to Programming and Robotics using LEGO MINDSTORMS™ NXT Robots and Scratch Programming. The students will have a great time as they really get to understand what makes a robot operate.

Explore Programming and Robotics with Lego® MINDSTORMS® NXT robots! Mini Bots camp will expose your child to all the sensors used in the NXT Kit. Building the base robots, using every sensor, we will give your child a chance to understand and program them.
Using a basic “Base Bot” children will use the Touch, Light, Sound and Ultrasonic sensors so your child can program more extensively. With a ground knowledge in sensors and programming your child will build a robot capable of maneuvering around an obstacle course and advance through a series of challenges. We will program your child's’ robot to have a personality! It will even be able to play a game of golf!! When is Tee time?
Students will create programs to make cartoons, movies, and games, compose music and much more with Scratch and other gaming protocols!
Note: MINDSTORMS Robots will not be taken home.
This will be for those who LOVE building advanced and complicated structures and LEGO Machines. This technology is reserved for our oldest students only. If your child loves building very challenging structures with LEGOS, this will be the camp for them! The builders will need to have a more in depth knowledge of LEGO building and pieces. The activities are motorized, non-motorized and pneumatics powered. Some of the activities that they build will include a “Walking Dinosaur”, a “Crane” and a motorized “Cable Car”. Click here for pictures of some of our builds.
The projects built will use universal joints, piston connectors, knowledge of structural integrity. Your child will only need to add imagination to step outside the box and try new building techniques.
Programming and Robotics
This adventure begins with building and programming LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3’s using a graphical interface to accomplish tasks. To begin, your child will build a “Base Bot” used to expand their knowledge of the programming palette.
Once completed your child will program the bot will go prospecting for minerals on the moon and avoid falling into craters. As it traverses the landscape it will keep track of hills and valleys to chart the moon's topography.
Students will create programs to make cartoons, movies, and games, compose music and much more with Scratch, Alice 2.0 and other gaming protocols!!
