Parent Camp Guide
Lego Robotics: CityBots II
LEGO Robotics Summer Camp
Camp Dates & Time
To create a world of kids that are not afraid to become innovators, idea makers and game changers.
Our goal is for something powerful to happen at our summer camps. Something that doesn’t happen at other camps. Sure, our campers will have fun. Actually, they’ll have a ridiculously crazy amount of fun. They’ll go home glowing, grimy and wiped out...from all the fun.
But amidst the frenzy, they also learn something with the potential to change them—and the world—profoundly. They learn how to fail. Not in a humiliating or dispiriting way. But in a self-assured way, that helps turn them into hardy, risk-taking creators, innovators and future game changers.
Lego Robotics: CityBots Overview
LEGO Robotics - City Bot Builders Level II is guaranteed to ignite campers excitement for learning as it enhances their skills in science, engineering and technology. Campers will build robots that focus on the technologies that we face in modern times. Every day participants will make a new robot with a certain functionality. We will start with a problem that campers should solve using new knowledge, skills, teamwork and creativity. In the City Bot-Builders campers will create robots that help to make cities more comfortable, cleaner and more safe. We’ll also have daily MakerSpace fun and walks to play at the brand new Wald Park!
