Highlights from past Summer Camps
Three robotics and engineering summer camps were held in 2011. All camps were completely full with over 80, 3rd grade through 8th grade students participating. Students participated from over 20 school districts/public school academies and from throughout Wayne, Macomb and Oakland Counties.
Camp 1-Robotics Academy: Engineering Summer Camp
For students going into the 6th, 7th, or 8th grade
Description: The Robotics Academy Student Summer Camp is a unique camp that challenges students to think creatively while exploring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles through design and programming. Students from over 30 buildings in 13 districts and public school academies participated in the two 2010 camps. These 4th through 7th grade students experienced group activities that required team participation, creative design and problem solving skills to overcome challenging obstacles. They explored automation principles by designing, building and programming a manufacturing assembly line robot and a 2-story elevator. In 2011 we opened the camps to 8th grade students. These Robotics Academy Students explored creative design by building projects such as a geodesic dome, a money sorter, and an automated marble sorter using Fischertechnik kits. This camp is taught by an electrical engineer/classroom teacher.

Camp 2-LEGO® Robotics Academy
For students going into the 3rd through 7th grade
Description: Excite student creativity through LEGO® NXT Robots! The Robotics Academy is a unique camp that challenges students to think creatively using activities that require individual and team participation, creative design, and problem-solving skills. It teaches students to lead as well as to work together to overcome challenging obstacles.
Camp 3-Renewable Energy
For students going into the 3rd through 8th grade
Description: Students use some of LEGO's newest and most technologically advanced kits to explore renewable energy sources; investigating energy supply, transfer, accumulation, conversion, and consumption. They use measurements and data analysis to describe and explain outcomes through hands-on activities and exciting, real-life models. Students experiment with energy from their own bodies and two other energy sources - solar, and wind - to generate, store, and use power. The culminating activity is a competition to build the fastest solar powered car.
