Event description

Description

The UpTempo Tech Robotics Camp is a uniquely designed course which combines an introduction to various hardware kits with a significant focus on the importance of software development. The course includes the building of Robotic kits using Lego Mindstorm and other popular platforms. Children will progress to the use of microcomputers such as Raspberry Pi and Arduino in the building of their robots. There will also be a significant focus on the use of Python coding to control sensor technologies. Children will also learn how to use controllers to control small motors and servos. There will also be a focus on the use of Scratch to control certain Robots. The final course will be a Robot built by the student with their choice of sensor technologies and their own software.

The course goal is meant to provide a child not only with an inspiration for Robotics, but also an appreciation for the software needed to design a Robot for his/her specific needs. Instructors will fine tune the course work for each child’s aptitude in this MakerSpace type class environment.

Camps are from 9am - 12pm and we also offer additonal LABS time from 1-4pm where children can work independently on projects under supervision of our high tech staff. This may include 3D Printing, Graphic Design, Robotics, Minecraft and Web Design.

Morning and midday snacks are provided. Children who stay for LABS are asked to bring their lunch.

Appropriate Ages: 10 - 14 years old
