This exciting robotics camp is a challenging program designed for middle school students who want to push robots to the limits. We’ll be using the latest EV3 robot from LEGO. This platform is a significant improvement from the old NXT – you can control up to 4 motors and 4 sensors simultaneously. The system has expanded memory, processing power, wifi, and Bluetooth. All the sensors are more accurate and they’ve added a gyro sensor that opens a whole realm of possible applications. You’ll learn how to use all the sensors as well as advanced building and programming techniques from two JMU Physics professors – both long-time AFOLs (Adult Fans of LEGO) who use LEGO robots in their college courses.
