Welcome to the newest Brickineers Engineering Camp for Students Grades 3-8!
Lego and VEX Robotics Game Programming
This srping we look at how to design and build a awesome games using Lego Robots, VEX IQ Robots, Hubs, Motors and Sensors, computers and remote controls. We revisit line following and mazes and throw in game elements. Kids in Grades 6 and up that have taken our VEX Robotics classes or camps will be given more complex tasks and will work in groups to solve interesting problems related to games and navigation. Children in Grades 3 to 6 will use Lego Boost and Power Up hubs to bring their game ideas into action. As always, we use remote controls with Lego and VEX robots before programming them.
There will be a great deal of planning and testing. Many ideas are open and sure to fail! But that’s the fun of tinkering that all makers learn. Epic failures are followed by Epic Victories! We will also build obstacles and try and outdo each other in making puzzles that robots can solve. Educational material in the camp will be adjusted for appropriate grade levels.
Children from grades 3 to 8 are welcome, learning tasks will be adjusted according to grade level. Children in Grade 2 that have completed a previous Brickineers camp are also welcome.
Brickineers classes and camps are based on the principles of experiential peer learning, and it is important that children have similar arithmetic knowledge and social skills, so that they can share and build from a common foundation at a pace that all can enjoy.
