Junior Robotics Camp is online this year!

Limited to 10 campers. Minimum of 3 required.
Materials cost: See below.
Deposit required: $200
Parent requirements: Parents will need to help campers get online and connect LEGO robots by Bluetooth.
Steven Wade (aka “Science Steve”) a National Board-Certified Teacher and a member of Penn Charter’s science department and Lower School faculty, will be teaching this week-long maker camp. Steve has been teaching inquiry-based science for more than 20 years.
Campers will build, program and design robots using the LEGO WeDo 2.0 robotics system. Campers will need to have their own WeDo 2.0 system and use of a computer to participate. If you have other LEGO sets, they will work the WeDo system, but you still need the core set. 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. Campers will learn a variety of building and coding techniques. We will work together online to demonstrate our robots and to introduce the next challenge.
Campers must have their own LEGO Education WeDo Core Set, $214.95 (not included in cost of camp; order your kit from Lego Education before camp) and access to a computer (not included in cost of camp) to which they can download the LEGO software and participate in Google Meet conferences. We will be building robots assuming everyone has access to the parts contained in the WeDo Core Set. The kit listed above requires 4 AA batteries. Parent requirements: Parents will need to help campers get online and connect LEGO robots by Bluetooth.
