Week 3: Robotics
Dates: July 6 to July 10th/ Instructor: Cyndi MacDonald
Campers will build programming skills as they will be introduced to computer science, including coding vocabulary and syntax, and computational thinking, while learning basic coding (algorithms, functions and conditions) using Lego software. Campers will then design and build task oriented Lego robots that are able to maneuver an obstacle course, pick up an object, or complete other basic tasks. Their robots will also compete in task relays. In addition to robot basics, students will learn about real world robotic applications. Through self-designed and guided exploration, students will develop hypotheses, test their predictions, and draw conclusions.
