Lego Robotics Summer Camps 2021

Lego Robot Zoo camp - July 19 - 23, 2021 -

FILLED - Sorry, check back next year (May 7, 2021)

Your task this week is to build and program a Lego robot animal who moves around to find food, uses sensors to avoid enemies, and care for young. You will also build a habitat for your animal to "live" in. Builders will use motors, gears and Lego bricks and WeDo, while Engineers will use Lego Mindstorms EV3 programmable bricks.
