Robotics Engineering & Programming Exploration For Kids and Teens (7-14)
BOT SHOP Learning Lab 7400 Gulf Freeway Houston Texas 77017 TECH IT OUT Robotics is a high tech summer robotics camp offered in the Houston's South East- East End Area where kids and teens learn to build, program and compete with robot of their own design in small teams. While having fun youth are engaged in teamwork, as well as computer programming, problem solving using math, robot engineering, design concepts, and critical thinking.
4 - Day Camp Monday - Thursday 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
Extended Day Monday - Thursday 8:00 am - 4:00 pm
Featuring Acclaimed LEGO Education Robotics Continuum
LEGO® WeDo Robotics™ Camps for (ages 7-8)
TECH IT OUT- Robotics “I-Stories” or “Interactive Stories” is a hands-on minds on learning experience that enhances students’ reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills through project-based learning and STEM Literacy. STEM literacy relates to a learner’s ability to understand and apply concepts from science, technology, engineering and mathematics to solve problems. Campers will use LEGO WeDo to constructing their own stories with over 20 main characters models featuring working motors and sensors to choose from; code their models; and explore a series of cross-curricular, theme-based activities that develop their literacy skills of reading, writing, designing, speaking and listening. TECH IT OUT- “I-Stories culminated in a high tech share fair where students set up a display of their models and present their computer animated interactive stories to their learning community and families.
LEGO® WeDo Robotics™ Camps for (ages 7-9)
TECH IT OUT- Robotics “WeDo Math and Science Camp” Activities are divided into four project-based learning themes – Organisms and Environments| Force, Motion and Energy |Sports and Engineering | History of Flight Working in small teams, campers understand how scientific investigation and reasoning allows them to use critical thinking and problem solving to make informed decisions and draw conclusions by designing models that represents how something works or looks that cannot be seen. TECH IT OUT- “WeDo Science Camp” culminated in a high tech share fair where students set up a display of their models and present their computer animated conclusion from science experiments to their learning community and families.
LEGO® MINDSTORMS Camps for (ages 10 -13) SKILLS BASED EDUCATIONAL ROBOTICS | ROBOTICS TEAM DEVELOPMENT Campers will be able to: • Define what a robot is in their own words • Identify LEGO parts by proper name, category and functionality • CONSTRUCT robots using LEGO instructions and own unique arm designs • Program using unplugged EV3 Brick programming • CODE using NXT-G or EV3-G to make the robot go forward, reverse, and make various turns • Use proportional math to improve robot precision like stopping at a given distance • Use engineering process to plan and solve a problem using math • COMPETE in small teams with a robot of their own design in FINALE Challenge FINALE CHALLENGE GAME OPTIONS FOR SUMMER 2015- ** Depends on location "EV3 Space Challenge" is a theme-based camp where learners are introduced to the exciting world of robotics through building and programming the NEW LEGO EV3 robots. Learners work together to solve realistic problems through missions that simulate problems NASA Engineers are currently work on. 2015 4H AgriBotics Robotics Challenge “Fix MyPlate” is an interactive challenge that illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar concept of—a place setting for a meal. “Fix MyPlate” Robotics Challenge highlights the stages in the production and distribution needed to grow a strong local food system and teaches where food comes from and how it is grown. Students design, construct and code autonomous robotic residents known as Farm Bots that navigate through “Harvest Town” helping the urban and rural farmers.
Light snacks, drinks, and lunch are included on FULL Day Camp ONLY!
