Description

Do you love robots? How about ones that talk, follow you, change colors, and more! This camp features some of the most popular, exciting robots out there! Each day, students will focus on two robots. They will learn about the robots' sensors, programming interface, and then take part in a series of coding challenges. This course will explore programming with DASH, OZOBOT EVO, and SPHERO.

Dash: This robot is perfect for students of all ages! Start with introductory commands to simply move Dash back and forth. Then, quickly increase the challenge level by using the voice, object, and sound sensors. Program Dash to avoid obstacles, navigate a maze, and even pick up objects through a Lego building challenge. Even learn to "walk Dash" by having it follow your voice!
Ozobot Evo: Don't let the size deceive you! This little robot comes with an incredible amount of sensors and coding capabilities. As the newest version in the Ozo family, we are excited to feature this in camp! Using its bluetooth capability, code Evo with Ozoblockly or using unique color codes. Learn about the proximity sensor and then use it to avoid obstacles in Evo's path.
Sphero: Program LEDs to create images, change color based on speed, and follow various tracks. Learn how to program using loops, if blocks, and special text-to-speech blocks. Then, play a game of "soccer" with your Sphero's as you take on the rest of the classroom!
