Boot Camp No previous experience necessary! Students who are interested in participating on a competitive robotics team at Jamestown Middle School must first attend a two week boot camp. Boot camp allows all students an opportunity to learn or further develop their skills. Student progress is tracked as skills progress in programming, teambuilding, robot building, and competing with a robot. During either one week or two-week boot camp, students will strategize, design, build, program and test a robot using EV3 Mindstorms or VEX IQ technology. Boot Camp is held either for one week; four consecutive days or twice a week for two weeks from 4:00 pm—6:00 pm at Jamestown Middle School. Boot Camp is the first step for students who are interested in participating on a competitive robotics team. Once boot camp is completed your child will be eligible to participate on the competitive team.
