Robocamp (ages 10-13)
A cybertastic summer holiday camp for children who love robotics and would like the opportunity to build their own robot, plus learn loads of new skills in coding, design, 3D printing and more.
Over five days, our young robot enthusiasts will design, build and programme a complete working robot. Along the way they’ll learn how to programme a BBC micro:bit using the coding language Python, create both 2D designs and 3D models and bring them to life using a Cricut machine and a 3D printer. They will learn how wheel size and gear ratios affect a robot’s driving ability and learn how to solder so they can put together a circuit board.
On the afternoon of Friday 9th June, parents and guardians are invited to come and see what their children have been making and cheer them on in a set of challenges designed to test and show off the robots and their skillful creators.
What is included in the price:
• A week-long camp in the summer holiday 5th – 9th August 2019 led by our experienced staff, running from 09.00 – 16.30 daily.
