Imagine it, build it, and make it go! At Robotics Camp, campers will use Lego Mindstorms EV3 to learn the fundamentals of building and programming a wide variety of robots. This is a unique camp that challenges students to think creatively while exploring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) principles through design and programming. Topics such as pneumatics, gear ratios, and torque will be explained and utilized in the building of the robots.
This camp 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. Activities may include events such as tug-of-war, where gears come in to play, or even an obstacle course that challenges their programming abilities. No experience is necessary, just an open mind and a love of legos!
Aubrey Martin, graduated from Saint Gertrude High School in 2011 where she was a member of the Robotics team for four years. Upon graduation, she attended Virginia Commonwealth University and graduated with a Bachelor’s of Science in Mechanical Engineering. During her time at Virginia Commonwealth University she volunteered with the Benedictine College Preparatory robotics team and FIRST Robotics.
This is Aubrey’s ninth year of being involved with this camp and her fifth year as the Camp Director. Aubrey will be attending Old Dominion University in the Fall to pursue a Master’s of Engineering in Civil Engineering with a focus in Coastal Engineering. She looks forward to another exciting summer at Benedictine!
