Each summer, the Robo Raiders offer half day, week-long camps for students entering 2nd-8th grades.  We use Lego robot kits to teach the basics of programming, core values, problem solving, and provide students with a FIRST Robotics themed challenge to showcase at the end of the week.


Intro to Robotics is for students entering 2nd-4th grades and uses the LEGO WeDo platform.  STEM concepts are coupled with lots of LEGO building!

Robotics I is for students entering 4th-8th grades who have no previous robotics experience. Using the LEGO NXT robot platform, they will learn basics of drop and drag programming, sensor use, and finish off the week with a FIRST LEGO League challenge.


Robotics II Advanced camp gives students with FLL experience (5th-9th grades) the opportunity to learn advanced EV3 programming, build more complicated attachments, and test their problem-solving skills as they finish off the week with a FIRST LEGO League challenge.
