June 25-29, 2018 Robot Zoo Week Camp

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 Mindstorm Legos EV3 programmable bricks.

Summer Camp Information

Camps are organized and led by the two experienced teachers and FLL Coaches, along with two Robotics team members. Each week has two groups of 12 campers: Builders for children entering grades 1-3 and Engineers for children entering grades 4-6.

The camps will meet in several rooms in the upstairs of Westminster UCC church building. Enter on 4th Avenue east door. Campers need to bring along a lunch. The whole group will walk to the Cowley Park (6th + McClellan) for lunch and a play break outside during the lunch hour. There will be a "show and tell" for parents at the end of the week from 2:00 – 3:00 pm, Friday.
