Camp Deep Space

Cost: $285/week

Camp Deep Space is a Lego Robotics and Rocketry camp, that takes campers to the edge of the universe on a mission to make a distant planet habitable for humans using LEGO® Mindstorms® Robotics kits. Our videos and animations help campers build and learn programming, tackle building challenges, and hone their robotic and project planning skills. Science factoids are interspersed throughout, accompanying engineering design activities tied into space exploration. Camp Deep Space’s curriculum has been developed by Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Academy. Each morning, Campers will work in teams to build and program a new rocket to accomplish a new mission. Each afternoon, campers work on the construction and launch of two of their very own Estes® Rockets. Campers will take their rockets home with them. Parents are invited to join us on Friday’s Family Day to view their child’s rocket launch.

Sample Projects:
2 Different ESTES Model Rocket Builds & Launches, Advanced Robotic Programming, "Auto-Pilot" Robotic Navigation, The Science of Terraforming, and more!

Camp Robot Inventor (Updated for 2018!)

Cost: $285/week plus $35 Lab Fee

Campers will learn about the Science of Robotics with information on famous inventors, major innovations, and breakthroughs and advances in robot history. Newton's Laws will be emphasized all week and each camper will receive three Robot Kits to work on. Campers will be able to take home their remote controlled robots!

For the 2018 Summer Camp season, We will be featuring our 4–Motor Robotic Arm kit and the 14–in–1 Solar Robot. In addition to these projects campers will be learning how to solder with our "Blinky Bot" soldering project. These are skills which are a MUST for anyone taking courses in robotics or electronics.

Sample Projects:
The 4–Motor Robotic Arm kit is a fully controllable robotic arm that can be used to "pick and place" objects, just like real industrial robotic arms. Students will build the entire arm piece–by–piece, following the instructors to ensure that no one gets left behind. Once complete students will use the wired controller to perform tests with the arm, to determine its limitations, accuracy, and lifting capability, before they take it home at the end of the week!
The 14–in–1 Solor Robot kit is an innovative solar powered science kit that can be re–configured into fourteen different robots, and energized via direct sunlight or micro rechargeable battery.
