Engineering Robotics Camp
Explore sensor and sound options while working on your own robotics project. Lectures will cover the concept of speed using gears, belts, pulleys, ramp angles and forces, while the team challenge will be to design a car/robot that can climb a ramp at the largest calculated angle. Students will get hands-on experience testing and using the concepts they learn in science and math classes by using e-Blocks. By creating a set of basic intuitive building blocks, students can implement a variety of systems without having any special programming or electronics knowledge. Students will build and program remote-control cars that will be tested for speed and stability on an obstacle course, and for the final project will write up reflections in journals and group notes. Students will also learn how to use Solidworks 3-D design software. Following final presentations, awards will be given for creativity and best overall design. The weeklong program uses Lego Mindstorm Robotics kits.
The Engineering Robotics Camp is for grades 6-8.
