LEGO Sr. ROBOTicS Day Camp 2018

Description

Got crazy-awesome lego skills? Or just getting started with lego robots? Either way, this camp is for you. We’ll break into groups to design and build our robots – and then focus on programming them to use a bunch of cool sensors… colour sensors, ultra-sonic sensors, gyro sensors, and touch sensors – we love sensors! And your robot will use them all to navigate the super-challenging walled maze. Then, at the end of the week, you’ll use your new mad programming skills and design your own robot to compete in the epic sumo battle!  Will your robot have what it takes to beat the competition?

Parents: A great break from typical sports camps, challenge your kids’ to play with their imagination and see what they can create – while secretly learning programming skills!

We are very fortunate to have some very enthusiastic Ministry of Education certified teachers and ECEs helping us run our program. Providing expert classroom management and fun instruction at each location. Each location has at least one school teacher as part of their team.

All staff have completed Emergency First Aid certification which includes the use of an Epi-pen.

Staff and volunteers have been screened by police records checks.

Each camper will get one Academy T-shirt with their weekly registration. We ask the children to wear one of our shirts each day to help keep the group together on park outings.  Additional shirts are available for order upon registration.

Brick Works Academy cannot perform medical tests or administer medications. All medications should be taken before or after the camp hours. If you need to administer medications in the middle of the day, please make arrangements with the onsite manager to meet them at an appropriate time and show photo I.D. prior to administering your child's medication. 

Children requiring puffers, insulin or epi-pens may bring their medication and self administer. These items should be kept on the child at all times during the day. Epi-pens should be worn in a fanny pack. Staff are trained in first aid assistance for emergency delivery of epi-pens

Sorry, robots and lego don't get to go home. The lego sets used in camp are very expensive exceeding the cost of the week's registration.
