Camp Staff
Susan Chan-Peter has been teaching science and math for over 15 years in both secondary and post-secondary education, with a focus on curriculum development. She believes that science should be easily accessible and, more importantly, a topic that can easily be understood by relating to real-life examples. It should be hands-on and fun while learning at the same time.  

Program Highlights
Do you like to build with Legos? Do you like remote-controlled cars? Do you want to fly? Then this camp is for you! We will build, program and design robots using the LEGO EV3 and the new SPIKE robotics systems, as well as build and fly drones! We will program using iPads. Each day, we will build a new robot design or add features to the robot from the previous day and program the robot to complete various tasks and obstacle courses with our drones. Campers will learn a variety of building, coding and troubleshooting techniques. At the end of camp, campers will get to bring their drone home!
