Come to campus ready to learn the basic principles of robotics! Using Lego SPIKE Prime, teams of campers will have the opportunity to invent, design, and build robots while learning the basic structure of computer programming.

By integrating motors and sensors with the SPIKE microcomputer, campers will program their robots to respond to their environment, react to light, avoid obstacles, and accomplish amazing things. The last half of the camp will be spent using the things they learned to accomplish tasks on a FIRST Lego League mat.

Space is Limited! Early registration is recommended. Campers will be registered on a first-come, first-served basis, based upon date of registration and when payment is received. Waiting lists will be maintained and filled in the order that they were received should cancellations occur.
