MINDSTORMS for Middle Schoolers
Dates: July 17-20
Age Group: Boys and Girls Entering 6th, 7th & 8th
This 4 day camp will afford each middle school participant (entering 6th-8th grade) an opportunity to explore robotics by building a LEGO Mindstorms robot and learning coding logic by using visual drag-and-drop programming. This camp will be a truly unique experience. Students will work individually and with partners to build and program a Mindstorm robot. After the robots are built students will experiment with visual programming, learn to "debug" code and will participate in team challenges.
A growth mindset will be supported and reinforced throughout the camp as students brainstorm ideas, take risks, and reflect on and correct misconceptions in a fun and safe learning environment. Coding concepts and vocabulary will be reinforced throughout the camp.
