Engineering with LEGO Robotics
for students entering grades 6-8 in Fall 2012
Both sessions of the LEGO Robotics Camp for 6th-8th grades are FULL at this time. If you would like to be placed on a waiting list, please contact Jennifer Harry at firstname.lastname@example.org, 316 978-6724.
This LEGO Robotics camp is a five-day, half-day camp for students who want to learn how to build, program and run LEGO robots through a series of competitions. This is an opportunity to expand
students’ understanding of robots in sensing and responding to their environment. The camp will be mostly hands-on with campers building LEGO robots and modifying the robots for different environments. There are sections for both beginner and advanced robotics students. The camp will culminate in a day of competition with actual courses from the Shocker MINDSTORMS competition. Each camper will receive a personalized LEGO name badge and bricks for each activity mastered
