Summer 2019 Robotics Camps

Robo Quest

Ages: 8-12
Use your imagination and the power of science to build different mini bots; a bot that draws and a Sumo bot that’s up to battle. All aboard as we make a Science Matters Electromagnetic Train. (You won’t believe how cool this train is!) Finally, design your own Cubelet robot to do your bidding. Your robot will move depending on how YOU construct it! Circuits, buzzing lights, and motors galore in this super-fun camp! Campers must be entering the 3rd grade to participate.
