What's Included

Deep Space Robotics takes campers to the edge of the universe on a variety of missions to make a distant planet habitable for humans. Using LEGO® MINDSTORMS NXT® kits and Terraformers software developed by Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Academy, along with videos and animations campers, build and learn programming, tackle building challenges, and hone their robotic and project planning skills. Science factoids are interspersed throughout, accompanying engineering design activities tied into space exploration. Camp Deep Space Robotics’ curriculum has been developed by Carnegie Mellon University’s Robot Academy. As an extra bonus, campers construct and launch two of their very own Estes Rockets. Parents are invited to join us on Friday’s Family Day to view their child’s rocket launch. We are on our way to the final frontier! Price includes a $45 lab fee.
