This is a 5-day fun and creative learning experience for kids to attend during the summer.  Kids work in pairs to solve challenges by building and programming machines and robots using the LEGO Mindstorms RCX Robotics Invention System. In addition to having fun, participants learn about mechanical and software design, problem solving, and teamwork skills.  Student teams will complete several projects and mini challenges, and will have an opportunity to design and program a robot to solve FIRST LEGO League robot competition challenges from a past FLL season (see www.FirstLegoLeague.org).  They will also build and customize an elaborate "barrel mover" contraption machine this is an exciting exclusive for the RCX camp only!

  • Minimum age is 8 (recommended for ages 8 – 12).  No previous experience is required.
