Robotic Summer Camp

robot campIf you live in Illinois or Massachusetts and have kids, this seems like a great camp to send them to.

Participants incorporate what they learn about robot architecture, end effectors, sensors and programming to command their bot. Projects are theme based and incorporate activities in sports, adventure, search & rescue, the Amazing Race and BattleBots.

The camps are run by Green Apple Campus.
