at the Homeschool Resources Group Center, 2323 Westwood Ave, Richmond, VA 23230.
Visit http://www.homeschoolresourcesgroup.org/summer-camps/summer-robotics-camp/
or call 804-410-4474 for more information.

Solar Robotics

With alternative energy playing such a pivotal role, there is no better time than now to
start children on the path to learning basic concepts behind these technologies. We’ll let
the kids learn about their future and have fun doing it with. Campers will build a a solar
powered robot that is theirs to keep. Ages: 10+ (robot with small parts)

Cost: $155

Extended Day Camp: $250

 

Robo Programming

This camp introduces campers to programming concepts. Using a robot with on-screen
programming capabilities, campers will instruct the robot to navigate specified courses
that can deliver a treat to a pet, surprise a family member with a personalized message,
carry a soda, guard a bedroom, collect field intelligence with its built-in microphone and
entertain their friends with the latest dance moves. Campers will take home their
programmable robots for continued fun and learning at home. Ages 7+

Cost: $170

Extended Day Camp: $270

 

SumoBot Rumble

This mini-sumobot camp allows kids to build a wrestling robot, while learning the basic
principles of electronic fabrication, programming, and mechanical design. Campers will
be involved in selecting gear ratios and building his/her own gearbox, bending and
forming the metal chassis, soldering the circuit board, and customizing the robots own
program. Robots are theirs to keep. Ages 12+ (soldering required)

Cost: $170

Extended Day Camp: $270

Build Your Own Robot

Campers will enjoy a robot that allows for creative design – no tools required! Kids can
learn about basic behavior on machine linkages, cranks, gears and motors. They’ll
experiment with motors, control switches, and gearbox gear ratios.This is a wonderful
robotics and science experiment robot in order to introduce children to robotics and
S.T.E.M. They will bring home these amazingly modular robots to allow their imagination
to soar at home! Ages 7+

Cost: $ 155

Extended Day Camp: $250
