Robotics & Electrical
Engineering with Arduino™
1 week • 9am-5pm
Teens • Ages 12-17
Beg – Adv
Build a Competitive Robot
Construct a robot and compete with classmates in challenges that test your engineering skills.
Electrical, Mechanical and Software Engineering
Learn intermediate and advanced engineering skills, like planning and re-iterative design.
Arduino™ Engineering at Your Command
Each student gets their own Arduino™ kit to take home, and spare parts for additional tinkering.
Using a combination of mechanical, electrical and software engineering, learn how to design, assemble and program a robot, using your own Arduino™ microcontroller. Discover how to use controllers to operate lights, motors and more. Transform a pile of parts into a ferocious, custom-made machine. Then challenge classmates’ robots, using the robotic tools and weapons you’ve designed.
A WELL-BALANCED EXPERIENCE
At DMA, we realize that everybody needs time away from technology – especially teens. That’s why, along with lunch, DMA students enjoy two breaks each day, when they can hang out and socialize with new friends or take part in a wide range of recreational, team-based and character-building activities.

Instruction & Staff
7:1 STAFF RATIO
Our average student-to-staff ratio is 7:1 and in some cases, this ratio is even lower. DMA’s instructors include industry professionals, technology educators and talented upper-level university students who have a genuine passion for the subject and a demonstrated skill for teaching, mentoring and inspiring. Learn more about our outstanding teaching staff.
Project-Based & Personalized Instruction
DMA provides hands-on, project-based learning that accommodates a wide range of abilities. Most of our courses are for beginner through more advanced students. This, along with a very skilled instructional staff and low student-to-staff ratio, allows us to individualize lessons, customize the learning experience and offer plenty of personalized, one-on-one time for each student.

What is Arduino™?
Is programming or robotics experience required?
Are the Arduino™ robots used in school robotics competitions?
Does this course help students prepare for college?
So my child is going to be 12 years old during the time of the camp. Are these teen camps appropriate?
Are these camps overnight?
I am interested in selecting some camps for my teen. How do I proceed with the registration?
Why are some of your camps more expensive than others?
