Dearborn Recreation & Parks Department Presents

Lego Robotics Camp

engineering

For children ages 12-14 at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center
August 11-15, 2014
9 a.m.-4 p.m.

This fun-filled camp will provide students with an introduction to some of the many facets of engineering through a pair of interesting challenges.

First, students will explore the fields of marine, mechanical and chemical engineering by dividing into teams and competing in specific engineering-related contests while attempting to create their own unique theme park experience.

In the second part of the camp, students will be introduced to robot building and programing.  Campers will design and build robots to accomplish a specific task, using their imagination to make their robot better than the basic robot.  Students will be challenged to give the robot eyes, create a working arm, use a color sensor and challenge other robots in a tug-of-war and sumo wrestling battles.

Kids take home mini-boats, dragster and balloon powered cars, home-made ice cream and power boats.  No Legos are taken home.

Cost:

$270 for passholders
