In this winter session course, students learn entry level robotics and programming, engineering, and science. Instead of simply “snapping bricks together,” campers are encouraged to think critically about how their robot design can be changed and to understand more complicated engineering techniques such as gear use, pulleys, and inclined planes. They learn about construction of buildings, machines, and 3D models, as they develop spatial awareness, problem solving and innovation skills and an understanding of balance, gravity, form, design, geometry and physics. Our instructors guide and encourage exploration and trial and error field-testing.
**This is a year long program. Projects are DIFFERENT fall, winter and spring sessions and do not repeat.
