ROBOTICS CAMP® at The U.S. Space & Rocket Center® is the most comprehensive robotics program in the U.S.!
Trainees ages 9 – 11 work together to learn engineering and design of robotics on land, in the air and underwater. The best of today’s robotics are tapped for the ultimate robotic gear head: Lego Mindstorms, K’nex and the Office of Naval Research’s SeaPerch. In addition to using exciting Lego Mindstorms, trainees will all be immersed in teamwork and leadership skills throughout the five-night experience. Crew Trainers will guide trainees through the past, present and future of space exploration using actual rockets and shuttles as the backdrop. Trainees will see the first rocket that put an American in space, the massive Saturn V rocket that took us to the moon, and the capsules early astronauts used during their missions. Trainees’ work will be put to the test to compete for the overall Robotics Award, one of the highest camp honors! Robotics Camp begins on Sunday afternoon and graduation is on Friday morning. Parents and family members are encouraged to attend the graduation ceremony.
