There are three main objectives of the camps:
- Provide a platform for children to learn about robotics, electronics, mechanics and computer programming in a fun way using the LEGO Mindstorms NXT kits.
- Promote science, technology, engineering & maths (STEM) subjects in schools.
- Promote the growth and development of the FIRST LEGO League and other robotics competitions in Ireland.
Children will work in pairs under supervision, with a robotics kit and a laptop running NXT software. A different topic will be introduced each day and a competition element will be present throughout the week.
PLACES ARE TAKEN ON A FIRST COME FIRST SERVED BASIS
The Learn Robotics Camps for 10-13 year olds will focus on the use of the LEGO Mindstorm robotics kits. Students will work in teams of two and with one Mindstorm robot and laptop between them so everyone is guaranteed a “hands on” experience. Tasks will be based on various robotic competitions and challenges. The tutors all come from a teaching/engineering/IT background and many are experienced international winners and judges of the FIRST LEGO League. Numbers are limited to ensure an exciting, interactive and educational experience.
Please bring: A healthy lunch and a bottle of water.
Please note: Children must be signed in and out of camp each day by their caregiver, and it is important that children arrive on time and are collected no later than 15 minutes after the scheduled end time of the camp.
