What is it? A camp where students will build and study the physics of a life-size Mario Kart: a go kart that uses a real Wii remote to control just about everything.
What will you learn? Students will learn about Physical Computing – the use of computers (in this case an Arduino microprocessor and Motion Capture Video) to interact with the physical world. Programming, Electronics, Engineering and Motion will all be explored.
10 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily
Ages: High School (entering 9-12 grades)
Students will have the opportunity to learn about the construction, design and programming of the LEGO MINDSTORMS® robots. Through a series of hands on training missions, students will learn how to navigate their robot using light, distance and touch sensors to solve increasingly complex problems. The week will end with teams of students competing in a STEM-based competition similar to what they might experience competing in a FIRST LEGO League. Campers will need to bring a sack lunch except on Thursday.
8:30 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. daily
Ages: 10-14 years
