Linn-Mar Robotics

2019 Summer Camps

Linn-Mar Robotics is hosting four summer camp tracks that cater to different age groups. The camps are student-created and mentored, and allow kids to have fun while gaining building, teamwork, presentation, and communication skills.

The Lego WeDo / Lego Jr. camp is a popular camp for our youngest campers. It is designed for students entering grades 1-3 and focuses on building teamwork and communication. Students will be given technical challenges around a science theme and will get to describe their solutions to the different challenges to their peers. The camp will cost $100 for 5 days.

During the Lego camp, students will solve technical challenges and develop creative solutions as part of a team using Lego Mindstorm Kits. Soft skills such as communication and teamwork will be practiced. No prior knowledge is required. This camp is intended for students entering grades 4-6. The cost of the week-long camp is $100.

The Vex Camp consists of building, programing, troubleshooting, and driving a Vex robot. Campers will use their robots to compete in a unique game challenge designed by Linn-Mar Robotics members. In addition to tackling the technical challenges, the campers will practice working as team members and communicating their solutions to other campers. The camp is designed for students entering grades 7-9, and is $150 for five days (20 hours).

The 3-D Printing Camp is new this year. Students are introduced to Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools and learn about the 3-D printing process. The camp includes a design challenge where students design and print solutions to accomplish the objectives. The camp is for students entering grades 7-12 and costs $150 for 5 days.
