Summer Robotics Camps to include FUN with all NEW, LEGO® MINDSTORMS® EV3 Robots
Florida Advanced Technological Education Center, the NSF Center of Excellence for high-tech manufacturing in Tampa, will offer several robotics camps this summer. The camps will feature the all NEW Lego® Mindstorms® EV3 Robot system.
June 16-20: Introductory EV3 Robotics camp for Middle School GIRLS ONLY!
June 23-27: Introductory EV3 Robotics Camp for ALL Middle School Students
July 7-11: Introductory EV3 Robotics Camp for ALL Middle School Students
July 14-18: Intermediate EV3 Robotics Camp (A) for Middle School Students
July 21-15: Intermediate EV3 Robotics Camp (B) for Middle School Students
July 28-Aug. 1: Robotics & Engineering Camp for ALL High School Students
Each camp offers different level of challenges. During the introductory and intermediate camp, students will learn how to build and program EV3 robots and program them to follow specific commands. The high school camp provides students with higher level STEM and robotics related challenges. Campers will Solve LEGO® Mindstorms® EV3 robotics challenges through original robot design, construction and programming. Campers will also learn about additive manufacturing and see demonstrations of 3D printing. Additionally, high school campers will use CAD software to design models for 3D printing and write programs to operate the NAO humanoid robot.
Curriculum for all the camps comprises of a mixture of LEGO® educational materials that are integrated with STEM subjects and modern manufacturing, and are conducted in a competitive problem solving environment. Campers will tour various local high-tech manufacturing facilities, and develop increased critical thinking, teamwork, and communications skills. To register for the camps visit www.fl-ate.org/
