Calling all rising 6th, 7th & 8th graders! Sharpen your technology and coding skills this summer through one of three tracks:

  1. Smart Bots: Have you ever wondered how self-driving vehicles work? Or how can cars automatically brake to avoid an accident? In this course, you will explore the world of Automation Technology + Robotics using the mBot and solve  programming challenges centered on the principles of automation technology found in the world around us.
  2. Robotics: Have you ever wondered how robots operate? Have you ever wanted to learn how to code? In this course, you will explore the world of computational thinking and microcontrollers using the mBot. You will learn how to program your very own micro-controlled robot and pit it against other students' robots in  competitions such as Maze Runner and Robot Wars.
  3. Game Design: Do you like to play video games? Have you ever wanted to create your own video games? In this course, you will explore the world of game design as you create and play 2D and 3D multiplatform games in camp wide competitions.
