This Introduction to Robotics Camp will give students ages nine to fourteen a solid understanding of robotics through hands-on activities that explore NASA robotics and Lego Mindstorms NXT-G.
Participants will explore robots as programmable machines that sense and interact with their environment. As they learn about robotics technology, students will also develop problem solving skills and technological literacy, and the camp can encourage development of literacy, math and interpersonal skills.
