Summer 2023 Lego Camps
There will be two weeks of Lego Robotics Summer camps: first week, a theme or simulation camp, 2023 theme is "Mayan Adventure"; second week is the Lego Challenge camp. The Theme week camps may emphasize building and designing robots and useful attachments to accomplish the tasks. The Lego Challenge week camp may emphasize more precise programming/coding to accomplish the challenges.
JUNE 26 - 30, 2023 = Mayan Adventure Camp
Builders – children entering grades 1– 3 (filled 4.1.23):
Your task this week is to build and program a vehicle to explore the jungles in search of Mayan ruins. The Builder group will design and build crew camp that has energy and water sources along with equipment to explore a Mayan temple.
Engineers – children entering grades 4 - 7 (filled 4.2.23):
Engineers will build Spike Prime/EV3 vehicles and program them to explore the jungles in search of Mayan ruins, complete tasks such as completing mazes, and moving objects to enter a temple.
