Kids: Adventures in Robotics
Learn to Design, Build and Program Robots
Discover how to design, build and program robots at the world’s best robot summer camp! This is a unique hands-on experience that gives kids the rewards and excitement of learning and using robotics. Campers work both individually and in small teams, learning about gear ratios, locomotion and energy as they construct robots using the acclaimed LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robotics kit.
Learn how to control your robots while putting them through a series of real-world challenges. At the end of the week, take the ultimate challenge and compete in DMA’s Robot Games!
Each student uses a dedicated robotics kit (one kit per student) that’s equipped with every part imaginable!
