TECH IT OUT Robotics is a high tech interactive day camp where kids and teens learn how to construct, code and compete with a robot of their own design in small teams. While having fun, youth are engaged in teamwork, as well as computer science, problem solving using math, robot engineering design concepts and critical thinking. SKILLS BASED EDUCATIONAL ROBOTICS | ROBOTICS TEAM DEVELOPMENT Campers will be able to: • Define what a robot is in their own words • Identify LEGO parts by proper name, category and functionality • CONSTRUCT robots using LEGO instructions and own unique arm designs • Program using unplugged EV3 Brick programming • CODE using EV3-G to make the robot go forward, reverse, and make various turns • Use proportional math to improve robot precision like stopping at a given distance • Use engineering process to plan and solve a problem using math • COMPETE in small teams with a robot of their own design in FINALE Challenge FINALE CHALLENGE GAME OPTIONS FOR SUMMER 2015- ** Depends on location "EV3 Space Challenge" is a theme-based camp where learners are introduced to the exciting world of robotics through building and programming the NEW LEGO EV3 robots. Learners work together to solve realistic problems through missions that simulate problems NASA Engineers are currently work on. 2015 4H AgriBotics Robotics Challenge “Fix MyPlate” is an interactive challenge that illustrates the five food groups that are the building blocks for a healthy diet using a familiar concept of—a place setting for a meal. “Fix MyPlate” Robotics Challenge highlights the stages in the production and distribution needed to grow a strong local food system and teaches where food comes from and how it is grown. Students design, construct and code autonomous robotic residents known as Farm Bots that navigate through “Harvest Town” helping the urban and rural farmers.
