Robotics Camp

June 23-27, 2014

This exciting new 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.  

Rising 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th graders. 


Cost- $400, includes lunch and snacks.

Drop off and pick up will be at the Physics & Chemistry building, located on JMU's campus.
