This camp gives you the opportunity to have fun and explore the world of robotics. Each day lends a new challenge, such as Tug-of-War or Speed Racing. The campers join into groups and work to build a robot that completes each day's challenge. At the end of each day, the teams have a competition to see how their robots work. No previous Lego programming experience is necessary! This is a great camp for those on FLL teams or just wanting to learn cool stuff. We will be using the NEW NXT Lego kit. Current Benedictine/St. Gertrude Robotics Team members help the children when needed so they can have as much fun as possible.
The Robotics camp is run by 2011 St. Gertrude graduate Aubrey Martin. Aubrey joined the Robotics team as a Freshman and was Team President her junior year. She was also team captain of the Electrical Team her junior and senior year. Aubrey is currently attending VCU and is studying mechanical engineering. She is excited to get the opportunity to run the Benedictine Robotics Camp once again.
