Nittany Bots: LEGO Robotics - The Journey to Master Builder

About the Camp

Science-U’s partnership with Way Cool STEM Education enters its 12th year with the NittanyBots camp! This camp will give kids the chance to use LEGO® Mindstorm kits to build, program, and test robotics technology. Campers will learn how to use drag-and-drop computer programming to incorporate motors and sensors into their LEGO designs and will also have a blast developing their teamwork skills and creativity! By the end of camp, students will have the skills to build cool things from their imaginations, without instructions! Space is limited, so register early. We look forward to working with you on your journey to becoming a master builder!
