Program Description


Join Mad Science for a week of discovery and fun in this five-day Robotics Camp! Investigate robotic fundamentals, learn about the history of robotics, from literature to engineering advancements, & build ingenious robots to take home every day. We will explore circuits, electricity, sensors, gears, and advanced robotic applications. Learn about the mechanical aspects of robots, with gears, gear ratios, torque and pick up the basics of electricity. Innovative circuit-building "maker" activities will creatively build children’s electric and robotic knowledge. In groups, children will put together circuits to make their own robot. Children compare, analyze and test a variety of robots everyday that are correlated to daily concepts. Experiment with sound sensing robots, animatronics, line-tracking robots, industrial robots, surveillance bots, IPad controlled performance bots, robotic pets, the worlds smartest and smallest robot. Children will use IPad's throughout the week to learn about today's robots and even build their creative confidence by making their own remote control! Our future roboticist's round out the week getting more in depth experience programming robots as they cycle through programming stations that will enrich their understanding of programming. Which of our creative camper's will design tomorrow’s robots? Could it be you?
