Creativity in Camp

Today we’ve started our new summer camp which introduces robotics to young kids. The camp is being hosted at Math Wizard which is a local tutoring facility. During the camp we demonstrated two EV3 Mindstorms robots through pre-built programs as well as a live run bluetooth connected app: Lego Mindstorms Commander. Later we organized a hands-on activity where the students learned how to work as a team, design ideas, and build functioning parts, all this in the form of a competition.  Both teams had to build a ball thrower which would throw a ball into a soccer goal. During the competition points were added for positive behavior which influenced sportsmanship. Also we made sure they worked well together and awarded points for good teamwork. In the end both teams made a winning attachment and they learned the basics to Robotics in a fun way!
