RCX MACHINES AND ROBOTS DESCRIPTION

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 (RCX Camp only).

  • Minimum age is 8 (recommended for ages 8 – 12).  No previous experience is required. 
  • Students will have a partner for most activities, and are required to cooperate and share well.
  • The week includes structured lessons and activities to practice construction and programming skills, as well as more open-ended projects and challenges, where they will receive guidance and coaching. 
  • Includes an exclusive "Barrel Mover" contraption project, not offered in the other sessions.
  • A light snack will be provided each morning and afternoon. 
  • Students need to bring their own sack lunch, and be motivated and mature enough to stay focused on robotics activities all day. 
NXT ROBOT CHALLENGES DESCRIPTION

This 5-day session uses the LEGO NXT Mindstorms robotics kit and includes structured lessons and challenges that introduce basic and intermediate level construction, use of sensors, and programming topics. Student teams will also have an opportunity to design and program a robot to solve FIRST LEGO League robot competition challenges from a FLL season (see www.FirstLegoLeague.org). 

  • Minimum age is 9 (recommended for ages 9 – 14). 
  • Students will have a partner for most activities, and are required to cooperate and share well.
  • The week includes structured lessons and activities to practice construction and programming skills, as well as more open-ended projects and challenges, where they will receive guidance and coaching. 
  • A light snack will be provided each morning and afternoon.
  • Students need to bring their own sack lunch, and be motivated and mature enough to stay focused on robotics activities all day. 
NXT BATTLE ROBOTS DESCRIPTION

This three-day session is for students with previous LEGO robotics experience. Student teams will design and program robots to compete in a number of contests such as Robot Sumo, Robot Treasure Hunt, Robot Wrestling, and Robot Cannon challenges.  The challenges will include both autonomous (programmed) and remote-control competitions.

  • Minimum age is 9 (recommended for ages 9 – 14). 
  • Previous LEGO Mindstorms experience is recommended (e.g. previous class, camp, FLL, or home experience with RCX or NXT).
  • Students will have a partner for most activities, and are required to cooperate and share well.
  • Building and Programming skills will be practiced in the context of the robot contests, where they will receive guidance and coaching.
  • A light snack will be provided each morning and afternoon.
  • Students need to bring their own sack lunch, and be motivated and mature enough to stay focused on robotics activities all day.
