Adventures in LEGO Robotics

Design. Build. Program.

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. Find this camp near you >>

Skills + Experience

Get ready for a fun and meaningful camp experience through project-based learning.

Learn Robotics

Students will get to see firsthand how their code translates into actions that control their robot. After going through the Engineering Design Process, students will solve real-world problems to produce a competition ready robot! All skill-sets are welcome, as Instructors and TA’s are ready to tailor curriculum to students needs. 

The Adventures Experience

Our Adventures camps give elementary level students, ages 8-12, a meaningful, hands-on introduction to the fundamentals of technology and design-thinking methodology; challenging them to collaborate with their fellow campers to create solutions to real-world problems.

I liked how we built our own robots and programmed them. I also liked how my group and I programmed our robots to follow a line and do a little dance!

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.
