This March break, introduce your child to the magical world of robotics and computer programming. Let them be curious, and develop their creative and logical sides together, while building robots, programming their robots to solve missions and, most importantly, having fun!
Campers will be divided into 2 cohorts based on age- ages 6-8 and 9-12.
In the 6-8 cohort, campers will build robots and machines such as self-driving cars and snappy alligators using easy-to-assemble blocks. They will then program the robots using a visual programming tool to make the robot perform the required tasks. Finally, the kids will customize the robots to their liking and imagination. Campers build at least 2 new models each day.
In the 9-12 age groups, campers will build more complex robots involving the use of multiple sensors and motors. Some of these robots are quake detector, block tosser, obstacle avoided and line tracer. Using a visual programming tool designed by MIT for kids called Scratch, kids will program their robots and complete the missions given to them. Campers will build and program new robots each day.
Dates and Timing: April 12-16, 2021. 9 AM – 4 PM. Extended care is available from 8 AM – 9 AM and from 4 PM – 5 PM at an additional cost.
Location: Unit E-5, 1011 Upper Middle Road E, Oakville L6J 7J4
Price: $349 + HST (Extended care $10/hour per day)
Provisional registration is now open subject to permission granted by the Government of Ontario to conduct the camp. In the event that the camp cannot be held due to COVID-19 related restrictions, a full refund will be provided.
