LEGO RoboCamp

Students will work with LEGO Mindstorms kits to create unique robots. The will learn the basics of LEGO robotics, learn how to design and construct a robot for competition. Students will also learn basic engineering concepts, such as gear ratios and structural integrity. They will program the robot to complete advanced and automated tasks without human control. For clarification, LEGO RoboCamp Week 2 is now a continuation of LEGO RoboCamp Week 1; we will be teaching more advanced material in week 2.

NEW: we are expecting to use EV3s — the new version of the Lego Mindstorms.

Basic Information:

Who should apply?

LEGO® RoboCamp is perfect for students who are aged 10 and up (usually grades 5 through 8).  Week 1 - no prior experience is necessary. Week 2 - prior experience in our class is required as we will be teaching more advanced topics in this course.

What is the difference between Week 1 and Week 2?

Learn and apply advanced LEGO Mindstorms techniques. You will learn advanced LEGO robotics concepts such as sensors, quick attachment configurations, modular programming, and a more in-depth understanding of the engineering design process. Like the basic LEGO Robocamp class, this camp culminates in a fun competition game challenge that can utilize all concepts from the course. The prerequisite for this camp is prior attendence in a WHS LEGO Robocamp.
