Camp:ASPIRE Course Sessions
We are excited to present an opportunity for kids 8+ this summer with virtual robotics camp sessions. In these unprecedented times, and with a lack of options for parents and educators, new solutions are needed. Camp:ASPIRE goes beyond learning how to code – we also teach kids how to build and program real robotics from leaders in the education field.
Beginner Level Courses
Beginner courses are appropriate for students who are brand new to coding and robotics. In these courses, students will be introduced to the mechanics of building simple to more complex robots and will learn how to create basic block-based codes to program servos to take action.
- Robotics, Coding and Engineering
Ready to start a journey exploring robots? This is the introduction to learning the basics of programming, engineering and robotics.
- Animal Robots: Designing robots to mimic animal movements
Hone your skills as a naturalist! Students use what they can observe in nature as inspiration for a robot they design, build, and program.
Intermediate Level Courses
Intermediate courses are appropriate for students who are not new to, or have foundational knowledge of, coding and robotics. These courses will introduce more complex builds using new sensors. Students will continue building their programming skills using block-based coding with sensor integration.
- Robotics and Sensors: Building robots to interact with the world
In this camp, students dive into how computers, just like people, use sensors to make sense of the world.
- A Helping Hand: Designing robots to solve problems
Students dive into different applications of robotics and then design a robot to solve a problem that positively impacts their community.
Competitive Robotics Courses
- This introductory course to competitive robotics gives students the tools to build, code,and compete with world class robots.This week-long course will introduce students to the fun, skill-building world of competitive robotics while weaving in STEM concepts that include physics, math, and computational thinking.
This class includes:
- Competitive Robotics with ChampBot Kit
In this camp, students will build their robot, compete in various activities intended to build and test their programming skills that culminate into the FINAL CHALLENGE – The ChampBot Championship Competition on the last day of camp. Note: This class is one hour of guided learning and one hour+ of self guided, offline activities per day.
Camp:ASPIRE classes run as a five day program with four hours of work per day. Each class starts on Monday. We have four different beginner or intermediate level courses to choose from that support multiple levels of learners.
Week long sessions begin on June 15th and run through August 2020.
We’re passionate about ensuring all kids, everywhere have the opportunity to participate in Camp:ASPIRE. 10% of our registrations are given back in scholarships through the STEM Learning Ecosystems. Learn more here about these scholarship programs here.
We’ve received your message and will be in touch shortly.
