$149 for a Five-Day Robotics Summer Camp ($399.95 Value)
Robotics camps teach girls and boys aged 7–17 the fundamentals of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics through the creation of a robot. Robot kits are supplied, but campers should bring their own lunches and drinks. Workshops take place from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Monday through Friday. Click here for a list of camp dates.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching kids a program of STEM—science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Kids absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring kids receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, kids enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
