This week campers will be using all three generations of the Lego Mindstorms, RCX, NXT, and EV3. Students will be learning block based programming, designing and building their own lego robot.

Skill Level and Age Breakdown

Juniors [ages 5-7]
Campers will be using the RCX Mindstorms to build their own cars/trucks/shmorgishborg vehicle using the brain, motors, electronics. Students will first race their new robotic creations, then learn to create robotics like moving arms and hands, learn to open doors and create a train.

Apprentices [ages 8-11]
This group will be learning about the different sensors and motors to create a 'smart vehicle'. They will design, create and program their own vehicle to race, perform a demolition derby and maneuver through a simple obstacle course. These students will be using the NXT Mindstorms.

Masters [ages 12-15]
These elite campers will be learning what it takes to become part of the FLL, First Lego League. This is an organization created by NASA and LEGO to challenge students in critical thinking, technology, science to create future engineers.
The past few years, more elementary and middle schools have been joining the league and this group is designed to help prepare for them to potentially join their school's team.

Tech Used
