Robotics Camp – Grades 1-4

  • July 16, 2018 - July 18, 2018
    1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This camp is perfect for all beginner and intermediate roboticists!   Robotics Camp will enable kids to explore the role that robots have in our world and the incredible potential they have to impact people in powerful ways.  Throughout the three half days, kids will have the opportunity to learn about robots, what they can do, how they move, and most importantly will begin to learn how computer programming and algorithms enable us to code what robots can do as we program robots to move, talk, play instruments, and even compete in obstacle courses.

We’ll start off camp by introducing how coding and robots are connected, using Dash robots and simple Blockly code.  After learning the basics, we’ll dabble with more advanced robots and programming concepts with other robots like Sphero, Ollie, and Dash & Dot.  Roboticists will work together in teams throughout Robotics Basics as they build computational and design thinking  skills like those honed by our world’s most innovative creators!

July 16-18, 1pm – 4pm  will be open to campers entering GRADES 1 THROUGH 4*  Campers will be grouped into flexible groups by age, each taught by a certified classroom teacher.

***(The morning camp offered this same week, Engineering Camp, will be from 9-12.  Campers who sign up for both are invited to bring a sack lunch and will have a free bonus hour included from 12-1 that includes Open Tinker Lab after lunch!  Click here to learn more about that camp.)***

*Age ranges are recommended ages.  If you have any questions, please reach out to Anna (anna@knowledgeplayground.org) and she’d be happy to help you determine if it makes sense for children outside that range.

Before participating in the first day of camp, students must return the signed Family Information Form, which will be emailed prior to the week of camp.

If this class sounds perfect for your child but this date doesn’t work for you, please contact us at info@knowledgeplayground.org in case another section is added this summer!

Contact us at info@knowledgeplayground.org if you are interested in an early drop-off at 8am or late pick-up at 5pm option.  If there is interest from multiple families, we’ll contact all participants to offer the option for an additional fee.

100% Satisfaction Guaranteed – If after the first day of camp, you decide this is not a great fit for your child, please contact Anna by phone or in person to discuss either a full refund or registration in another Collaboratory camp instead.  Collaboratory reserves the right to cancel (with 100% refund) this session if enrollment is less than 6 kids.  We believe strongly that one of the most important elements to learning at the Collaboratory is the collaboration and teamwork with other students.  We want to ensure there are enough students to create a powerful team and to grow our thinking power!
