Explore the world of robotics in Robot Mania! From building to coding, this camp will take you through all that makes a robot, a robot, while developing critical thinking skills to solve real world problems. Campers will get a chance to program a robot, create their own code, and make their own robot at home!

Campers will:

• Explore the inner-workings of machines complex and simple that help us in our everyday lives

• Build miniature “bristlebots” and navigate through a challenging maze

• Discover the secret language of robots – coding! - with games and activities that explore codes of all kinds

• Create their own simple commands for a robotic arm, and teach it to wave hello!

How Do Virtual Camps Work?

Our expert STEM Educators will facilitate hands-on activities, self-directed learning, STEM explorations and group discussions.

Each day of virtual camp will include:  

• 9:00 am - 10:00 am Zoom Meeting with lesson/activity, animal encounters or science demos.

• 10:00 am - 11:00 am Daily Challenge time & Open Zoom.

• 11:00 am - 12:30 pm Zoom Meeting to present daily challenge, follow up activities and lessons.

The daily STEM challenges encourage critical thinking, creative problem solving, and child-led exploration.  These challenges can be completed in under an hour and with limited parental supervision.

The $175 base price of camp is for one "screen" and 1 kit. While we do not limit the number of children that can share a screen, the one kit that comes with the price is enough material for one participant.  You may purchase additional kits for $25. For example, if you have two children sharing a screen, you might want choose 1 screen and 2 kits for $200.

Kits will be available for curbside pick up the week before the camp. If you are unable to pick up your kit curbside, please contact us for a list of kit materials.

*video session will be conducted over Zoom and recorded.  If you need to miss a session, the recorded stream can sent via email.
