Lord of the Bricks is hosting the following robotics camps this summer. Camps will occur 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 Schedule: Solar Robotics - June 15-17 Robo Programming - June 29-July 3 SumoBot Rumble – July 13-17 Build Your Own Robot – August 3-7 -- 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-ANNOUNCEMENTS-L.
