$149 for a Five-Day Robotics Camp ($299.95 Value)
From Monday, August 20, to Friday, August 24, girls and boys aged 7–17 meet daily from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Robot kits will be supplied, but campers should bring their own lunches and drinks.
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 10:1 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.
Since 2007, the team behind this S.T.E.M. initiative thinks that the typical STEM program are missing something. To correct this error, their day camps combine problem-solving with creativity, making S.T.E.A.M.: an acronym standing for science, technology, engineering, art, and math. During these sessions, instructors guide children as they build imaginative projects that combine creativity, art, science and technology, building moving art or individual controlled robots. The art or the bots come to life, thanks to carefully placed motors and circuits. The component interact with infrared sensors to create dynamic, moving sculptures, such as flowers that rustle in the wind or butterflies that tap dance, children enter their creations into art displays, racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.
