Fall 2018 Classes are now open for registration!
Mission: Robots in Space (Challenge Details)
Together we’ll explore how robots help humans go places they never could before – like other planets in our solar system! Humans have gone on many missions into space, now it’s time to start thinking about how robots can help. As a team we’ll use block code to program robots and have them accomplish several specific tasks critical to space exploration.
Mission: Out to Sea (Challenge Details)
Help save the oceans! You will program your robots to conduct an open ocean rescue, contain an oil spill, repair a coral reef and even rescue a dolphin! As a team we’ll use block code to program robots and have them accomplish several specific tasks related to oceanic endeavors.
Mission: Robot City (Challenge Details)
Program your autonomous robot to move around the city just like they can in real life! The robots will have multiple tasks that they can accomplish that will keep the city running smoothly – from package deliveries to assisting the police or fire fighters to collecting garbage. As a team we’ll use block code to program robots and have them accomplish several specific tasks critical urban infrastructure.
Mission: Robot Arcade (Challenge Details)
This isn't your typical arcade, it's an arcade for robots. You and your robot will be lost for hours running around shooting a crossbow, launching a catapult, pulling a zip flyer, taking a hook shot, along with many other arcade style target based games. All games are played with foam darts and pong sized balls.
Programming with Robotics and Sensors
We will explore the basics of how to program a robot to be able to move around and interact with its environment. You will learn about and have hands on experience with the many different sensors that robots are using in real world applications. You will code your robot to navigate it's environment using the ultrasonic sensor, the color sensor and the gyro sensor - along with many more. Girls and boys alike will have fun using block code to program the robots to perform fun and exciting tasks.
Games with Robots
Using a mix of coding and a remote control, you and your team will have fun playing in a number of games - Scatter Pong, Ring Stacker, Capture the Flag are just a few of the games we will play in this action packed camp.
Join us this Fall for Idaho's first ever 3v3 style RC robot soccer tournament! Whether you sign up as a team or sign up to join a team, come prepared to build a robot player that you will control as the team competes in a friendly round robin tournament. Pizza will be provided.
