Summer Youth Robotics Camps

Summer Robotics Camps for Boys and Girls

Engineering, math, and science-minded elementary and middle school students will love the interaction offered in these robotics courses. Students assemble mini robots using building models, attach sensors and computer-controlled motors, and configure their behavior using a simple programming tool. Kids love these interactive youth robotics courses and summer camps.
