Lego Robotics Maker Camps

20 Jun Lego Robotics Maker Camps

The first Jr. Lego Maker Camp at Rolling Prairie was a blast! Kids in 2nd – 4th grades built and programmed Milo the rover using Lego WeDos. They learned how to write code to program the tilt sensor, motion sensor, and motor to solve real world problems:

  • How do scientists and engineers reach remote places?
  • How can we detect objects using robots?
  • How can robots communicate with us?

They also learned how to work as part of a team, follow detailed directions, and be creative. There is an experimentation time built in at the end of every camp session for students to modify their robot and write new lines of code. (The sound output is always a favorite!)
