Summer 2013

R-Botx CREATE & DESIGN ROBOTS

FOCUSED ON MINDSTORMS TECHNOLOGY PLATFORMS

CAMP OVERVIEW

R-Botx (pronounced r-botics) is our robotics program and features EV3 & NXT Mindstorm Robots.

Each camper works on their own Robot and gets instruction, and hands on experience, learning how to build and program robots.

Intermediate and advanced campers will work on team challenges to design their very own robot designs to compete in our robot wars.

In 2013 the camp features game the NXT Mindstorms, but we will upgrade and also offer EV3 as soon as they are offered at retail.

Each camp runs for 1 week and campers participate in new projects each week.

This camp program is designed for kids entering 3rd through 10th grades.

Camp tuition is $495 per session. That's at least $380 less per week then our local sci-tech camp competitors!
