Robotics Summer Camps

MCC Robotics and Programming Camp June 19 - 23
Experimental. Student-centric. Collaboration. These are some of the skills students will learn in this workshop. Students will also pair their creativity and critical thinking skills with state-of-the- art STEMBot technologies and the master design thinking process (define, ideate, prototype and test) to create student driven robotic systems. This class focuses on the programming side of the assembled system and students will assemble each of the components and use programming language to create new robots designed to complete specific challenges. Each day will cover a separate lesson plan, culminating in an expo-styled competition event on the final day of camp. Students will need to bring their own sack lunches. (For students entering fourth through eighth grade, ages 9-13.)
