This four-day camp introduces campers age 8-11 to basic mechanics, electricity, and robotics concepts through a variety of in-class and studio-based exercises. With an emphasis on hands-on learning, a variety of activities are used to introduce the children to concepts such as electrons and current flow, simple DC circuits, motors, axles, and wheels, and the application of these concepts to robotics. The week culminates in a show-and-tell session for friends and parents where campers explain what they've learned throughout the week and demonstrate various projects they've created.
