At Robotics camp students develop an understanding of "how things work" through hands-on activities that demonstrate the principles of simple and motorized machines. They gain experience with design and problem solving through the use of gears, motors, wheels and axles, pulleys, and remote control devices. Working in teams, students learn a variety of ways to design a robot to do the things they want it to do.

At Robotics camp, held in a friendly, sports-like atmosphere, we focus on team-building, problem solving, creativity and fun for ages 6 and up. Full day or 1/2 day is available: 9 - 12, 1 - 4 or 9 - 4. Students will be working with the widely known and popular plastic LEGO building blocks, including the more specialized pieces such as axles, gears, beams, wheels, motors, microcomputers, pneumatics and other parts that will enable them to safely create animated and exciting mechanical movements and other effects. The LEGO Technic System has been adopted as the standard material for robotic designers, because of their sophisticated and powerful set of mechanical design components. The fact that they can be disassembled and reconfigured as necessary is essential in testing, design, and instruction.
American Robotics Academy ® camp can provide the guidance and confidence to build simple working robots, as well as the inspiration for more complex robotic inventions.
