Exploring space provides a perfect opportunity for aspiring engineers. Join us in tackling some creative challenges that will simulate what engineers must examine when designing equipment for missions to unknown areas. Using the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 platform, campers will design and build robotic systems that will explore the planets, astronomical bodies, and deep space. Using design thinking, campers will solve challenges and figure out what to do when unexpected events interrupt the mission plans.
Students will build the basic EV3 robot to complete simple tasks, such as navigating to a specific location, collecting and moving materials, and identifying the environment with the touch, ultrasonic, and color sensors. Basic programming skills will be highlighted.
Students will design their own EV3 robot, with research and guidance, to achieve more complex tasks, such as navigation using sensors and the use of advanced mechanical structures. Advanced programming techniques will be introduced and utilized.
Creativity, perseverance, and teamwork will be celebrated and encouraged. Having some programming experience is helpful for this camp, but not required. All challenges during both weeks of camp can be differentiated to meet the needs of each camper. 3-2-1 LEGO!
