Adventures in Lego Robotics & Programming

Kids Camp  Ages 8-12

Build and Program Robots with LEGO EV3

Learn to design, build and program awe-inspiring robots using LEGO’s most advanced and newest robotics technology – the powerful MINDSTORMS® EV3. You’ll work as a team to complete projects and games created specifically for EV3. The EV3 is today’s go-to robotics system for hobbyists and features improved digital sensors, a seven-state color-light sensor, new gyro sensors, touch sensors and an improved ultrasonic sensor. Students will leave with an understanding of the Engineering Design Process and the skills needed to build and program competitive robots.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do students get to keep their robots after class is over?

Unfortunately, no. EV3 kits are re-deployed week after week; however; students in our Arduino robotics courses are able to take home their Arduino kits.

Are these robots used in school robotics competitions?

Yes. The First LEGO League is where most students can get started with robotics competitions at their schools.
