Choose Between Two Options

  • $74.99 for a Robotics for Kids summer camp (a $150 value)
  • $124.99 for a Robotics for Kids summer camp (a $150 value) and a Digital Movie Studio for Kids summer camp (a $150 value; a $300 total value)

During the one-week Robotics for Kids summer camp, kids in grades 2–7 construct and program Lego robots using sensors and motors. Once they can program their robots to move and respond to their environment, the kids bring all the robots together for one massive battle.

The Digital Movie Studio for Kids camp incorporates the Legos in a different way—on film. For this camp, students in grades 2–6 set up scenes using Lego minifigures and inanimate objects, and record an animated movie following their adventures. At the end of the camp, parents can come for a mini movie festival. All of the films will be published on YouTube to share with friends. Click here for a list of camp dates and locations.

Instant Robotics

Sorin Achim is a master of robotics. After gaining a degree in electrical engineering from the Romanian Department of Defense, he served as a robotics research engineer at Carnegie Mellon University and received the Allen Newell Award for Research Excellence for his contributions to the design of mobile robots.

With these accomplishments in hand, Achim founded Instant Robotics with one mission—"to translate robotics language into plain English." He teaches adults how to implement robotics into a variety of fields ranging from industry to the military. His advice touches on using medical automated systems in health care, blending robots with artistic media, preventing the robots from taking control, and engaging with robotics as a teaching tool in schools.

For a more hands-on environment, Instant Robotics' summer camps bring advanced technologies to children. In one-week sessions, students can build their own robots, create their own animated films using Legos, print three-dimensional objects, design a video game, or develop a mobile app. The camps conclude with a mini movie festival or a robotic battle for the last can of WD-40.

The kids loved it and the class size was small so there was a lot of individual attention.

My daughter was on the older end of the kids from the class. I was worried she would feel awkward, but I had no need to worry. She really enjoyed the camp and wants to go again. Sorin the instructor was wonderful. Highly recommend the camp.
