LEGO® ROBOTICS LEVEL 1

The robotics kits are designed for beginners and more experienced builders. This course is designed for an introduction to the build and design process with a small amount of programming. Create a moving robot by the end of the week.

LEGO® ROBOTICS LEVEL 2

Level 2 robotics takes the building and programming to the next level. You will work with and modify the stock robots built in Level 1 and get into more of the programming to make them do more! Level 1 is not required to participate.

ENGINEERING CHALLENGES

Each day will be a new challenge for you and your group to figure out and solve a problem to the best of your ability. We provide the problem and materials, and you provide the brains! Will you be the engineering champion at the end of the week?
