ROBOPLANET CAMPS & FIELD TRIPS

RoboPlanet hosts various camps and field trips around STEM that cater to 5-18 year olds children and youths.

Tello

In this camp, students will learn the basics of block coding with drones! They’ll learn about loops, conditional statements, and variables, all in the context of Snap, a block-based programming language. By the end of the week, students will be able to make the drone fly autonomously and complete various missions!

* Laptop required

**Kits at the camp will be provided  

RoboMaster

In this camp, students will improve their robotics skill sets and gain hands-on experience.  Students will gain knowledge of the mechanical structure of robots and programming. Students will also learn to program the robot and customize the robot’s AI (artificial intelligence) to conquer obstacle courses, races, and battles. 

Wedo+Scratch

In this camp, students will build and code various robotic creations. They will use code blocks and characters to gain a foundation in computational thinking, creating animated stories and games. The camp course helps strengthen their cognitive development through hands-on engineering and coding activities. 

FLL JR.

This camp introduces STEM concepts to kids ages 6 to 9 years of age.  Guided by an experienced FLL Jr. coach, teams explore a real-world scientific problem – this season: Living on the Moon! They create a Show Me poster that illustrates their journey of discovery and introduces their team. They also construct a LEGO model of what they learned. Part of the model is motorized and programmed with LEGO WeDo. In the process, kids learn about teamwork, respect, sharing, and critical thinking.

Mindstorms EV3

In this camp, Students will construct, program and control robots through investigative and exploration activities. Additionally, they will be encouraged to seek information and their research activities will expose them to the engineering process. They will be introduced to concepts such as coding, looping, decision making and flow control as they utilize the visual drag and drop programming interface. Students will discover the projects that offer challenging designs and levels of complexity.

VEX EDR

In this camp, students will customize, build, and wire a base for your robot, then watch it go. Work in teams to adapt your robot to compete in dynamic, user-piloted challenges like obstacle courses. Using the robotics coding language, you’ll code your robot to complete autonomous tasks like navigating a maze or stacking and moving objects with its claw arm.  Be prepared to have lots of fun!

FIELD TRIP STATION 1: Simple & Powered Machines

This station introduces students to a broad range of motorized gearing mechanical models and covers physics topics such as force, motion, measuring, energy and structure.

With a selected hands-on mechanical project, students will explore and comprehend fundamental mechanical concepts such as lever, pulley, gears and center of mass.
