Kids: Adventures in Robotics with LEGO® NXT
Learn to Design, Build and Program Robots
Kid engineers discover how to design, build and program robots in this unique hands-on experience that delivers excitement while also rewarding young learners. Campers work both individually and in small teams, investigating key concepts such as gear ratios, locomotion and energy – as they dream up their own awesome robots using the acclaimed LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robotics kit.
Kids learn to control their robotic creations by putting them through a series of tasks. At the end of the week, campers take the ultimate challenge by competing in DMA’s Robo Games!
