Hi Everyone, I am writing to inform you of a great opportunity to get started in LEGO robotics if you live in the Richmond VA area. The Center for the Creative Arts, who graciously supports both an FLL and an FRC team, is offering a spring break robotics camp. Here are the details from their spring brochure: Robotics! - AGES 9-14 APRIL 5-9 Learn how to build and design Robots using the Lego NXT system. Students will learn basic robotic engineering, programming principals, and the Lego Mindstorms NXT Robotics Invention system. No previous experience required. Instructor Julie Eberheim is the coach of teams that have won regional awards in the First Lego League in 2007 and 2008, and in the 2009 FIRST TECH CHALLENGE - a high school league. Mon-Friday, 4:30-7:30 pm $135.00 per week. Enrollment is limited to 9 students and fills up very quickly. The Center is also offering summer camps both during the day and evening for robotics. More information can be found on their website www.center4creativearts.org <http://www.center4creativearts.org/> . I will be teaching the robotics class along with my FRC robotics team members (who were also on my FLL team for the first two years). Our class is structured to the level of knowledge of the participants and we have accommodated beginners and intermediate/advanced robotics students. If you know anyone who would be interested in these classes - most especially the spring break class that has only 3 openings left, please contact the Center's director Sue Brown: Sue Brown Director The Center for Creative Arts at Shady Grove 4825 Pouncey Tract Road Glen Allen, Va 23059 804) 360-2687 www.center4creativearts.org <http://www.center4creativearts.org/> You can also contact me regarding the classes, what will be covered, etc Julie Eberheim [log in to unmask] -- To UNSUBSCRIBE or CHANGE your settings, please visit https://listserv.jmu.edu/archives/vadcfll-l.html and select "Join or leave the list". -- VADCFLL administrative announcements are sent via VADCFLL-ADMIN-L.
