LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Robotics Camps

 

The LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Robotics camps empower middle school aged campers to build, program, and test their solutions based on real life robotics technology. Campers experience the most up to date technology using the EV3 Software - a powerful, easy to learn, easy to use software - for programming and data logging based on the industry-leading graphical system design software used by scientists and engineers worldwide.

Campers will build machines, control motors, and collect feedback providing them with programming data. They will gain multiple hands on experiences with an array of sensors, motors, and intelligent units.

Intelligent Character

Throughout this camp, your camper will build a variety of Intelligent Characters to program and test based on real-life LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 robotics technology. This camp will use a powerful computer brick that makes it possible to control motors and collect sensor feedback. Campers will program, data log, and brainstorm using LEGO® Education Software in order to find creative solutions to problems and then develop them through a process of selecting, building, testing, and evaluating. Campers also practice cooperating with others and get hands-on experience with sensors, motors, and intelligent units.

Entering Grades: 6th - 8th
Camp Fee:
$199
Course Number:
CYC-1108

Dates: June 20-23, 2016
Days: Monday-Thursday
Time: 8:30am - 4pm

Middle School Scientific Engineering

Campers will be challenged to design, build, and program a LEGO® MINDSTORM® EV3 robot that moves using a motor with rotation sensors throughout the Middle School Scientific Engineering camp. They will create a robot that measures distance and speed, moves without using wheels, maximizes power to move up an incline, and moves and turns to create shapes. They will also add a sensor to their robot to control behavior and to measure surrounding area and reflected light, distinguish specific colors, graph, distance from objects, and analyze sensor data. Throughout the camp, students will be challenged to design, build, and program robotics systems built from subsystems and develop systems that move a ball, pick up and place objects, simulate manufacturing, sort colors, and communicate the robot’s location!

Entering Grades: 6th - 8th
Camp Fee:
$199
Course Number: CYC-1109

Dates: June 27-30, 2016
Days: Monday-Thursday
Time: 8:30am - 4pm

Space Exploration Challenge

Campers will build a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 robot, program it, and visualize traveling to and living on Mars in the Space Explorer Challenge camp. They will work as young scientists and engineers, immersing themselves in motivating STEM activities that promote creative problem-solving, communication, and teamwork skills. The Space Explorers Challenge camp will take campers on challenging missions and research based projects and provide campers opportunities to explore and create innovative solutions to current space exploration topics. The research projects are based on 3 key problems that researchers from around the world are trying to solve: how to ensure human survival in space, how to create energy in space, and how robots can help human space exploration! 

Entering Grades: 6th - 8th
Camp Fee:
$199
Course Number: CYC-1110

Dates: July 11-14, 2016
Days: Monday - Thursday
Time: 8:30am - 4pm

Physical Science of Renewable Energy

In the Physical Science of Renewable Energy camp, your child will conduct experiments which are centered on energy: energy production and consumption; heat and temperature: melting points, insulation, and heat transmission; force and motion: mechanics and kinematics, and light: light intensity. The camp’s activities consist of 14 physical science experiments for middle schoolers and utilize the data-logging capabilities of the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 hardware and software, as well as a Renewable Energy module and a Temperature Sensor. Each of the 14 experiments is structured so campers learn a science lesson with engaging LEGO® models that are easy to build and program.

Entering Grades: 6th - 8th
Camp Fee:
$199
Course Number:
CYC-1120

Dates: July 18-21, 2016
Days: Monday-Thursday
Time: 8:30am - 4pm

Design Engineering Projects

The structure of the activities in the Design Engineering Projects curriculum mimics the engineering design process used by scientists and engineers in many industries. Each LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 project starts with a design brief explaining the challenge, uses videos of robots in action to make real-world connections, and culminates in a final project that can be shared and presented. Throughout the process, campers gain and use knowledge of science, technology, and mathematics as they engineer a solution. This structure is designed to help campers develop the 21st-century, creative-thinking, problem-solving, teamwork, and communication skills required for success in school and beyond. Campers will Make It Move by using motors with rotation sensors; Make It Smarter by adding sensors to their robots to control behavior and to measure, graph, and analyze sensor data; and they will be challenged to design, build, and Make a System from subsystems.
