HOW CHILDREN BENEFIT
Seeing their hand-built creations come to life, children start to believe that anything is possible. They learn to view technology and programming as the creative tools that may some day help them make their dreams come true.
There’s no better way to learn than to learn through play! Robotics lessons with RoboCAMP are a great chance for children to build their own LEGO WeDo and LEGO Mindstorms robots and use software to control them.
Let’s be honest – what child doesn’t like to play with LEGO bricks? We don’t know any! RoboCAMP lessons put this passion to good use. With kid-friendly tools in the form of LEGO WeDo and LEGO Mindstorms sets and easy-to-use software it’s easy to forget that it is actually a learning experience.
PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS
Building mechanisms and making them operate the way we want them to is not always easy. With our RoboCAMP projects we teach children the correct troubleshooting procedures and then challenge them with various engineering problems to develop their potential, both as individuals and as teams.
COLLABORATION AND COMMUNICATION
We strongly recommend that children use our learning platform working in pairs. This approach to learning helps them to complete their tasks in time while improving their teamwork skills, social skills that in this day and age are becoming more and more important.
As they work through the lessons, kids experience the rewards of comprehension and accomplishment. Seeing a hand-built robot come to life at the end of each lesson brings every child a strong sense of achievement.
CHECK OUT OUR LEGO WEDO AND LEGO MINDSTORMS LESSON PLANS
CityCAMP WeDo is our longest-running and most successful lesson plan. It was designed so that keen young engineers of the future can learn about new technologies and robots that could improve life in a modern city. To see the solutions in action, children build and program robots of our design.
CityCAMP EV3 is a version of CityCAMP, designed for the newest LEGO robotics set: LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The lesson plan focuses on how robotics and technology can make life easier in a modern city. This time, however, we build robots using LEGO Mindstorms EV3’s new set of electronic bricks and program them with different software.
DiscoveryCAMP NXT lesson plan gives students an insight into solutions for modern factories and industries. While building and programming 12 intricately designed robot models, students learn how maths, physics and extraordinary machines can bring exciting goals within reach.
DiscoveryCAMP EV3 is a version of DiscoveryCAMP, designed for the newest LEGO robotics set: LEGO Mindstorms EV3. The lesson plan gives students an insight into solutions for modern factories and industries. This time, however, we build robots using LEGO Mindstorms EV3’s new set of electronic bricks and program them with different software.
ArcadeCAMP is an introduction to programming and game development for kids ages 8 and up developed for Scratch only – no robotics sets are required! With ArcadeCAMP your students will learn how to program their own computer games by recreating the most popular games in history – from the early arcade hits such as Pong and Frogger to ultimate video-game blockbusters such as Snake or Tetris.
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
It has been nothing but a great experiance using your programs for our after school & Summer Camps last year.Your program has made teaching kids fun and easy.Our teachers loves the step by step format and the kids loves the fact that they can easily navigate back and forth by themselves to learn and build. I can’t wait for more new programs you come out with…Thank you!
Conducting robotics workshops with RoboCAMP materials is simple and exciting. The resources are very well-devised, so you only need the basic equipment and the teacher’s enthusiasm – the rest is pure fun! In my case, I could spend all my time on promoting my business, because the rest was already prepared by RoboCAMP.
Absolutely Amazing Product!!! The Safari package is just what I was looking for. It is easy for me and my special needs students to use. I cannot wait to display our projects at our Annual STEM Fair. Customer Support personnel were attentive to my needs.
Using RoboCAMP materials gives the teacher a great sense of comfort in class. Lessons are created with attention to detail in terms of merit and graphics, plus the navigation is very intuitive. What’s more, all the robot designs are very appealing to students and they give them an opportunity to discuss a variety of issues from different fields of knowledge.
“It’s a fantastic way to learn robotics and it is an easy method to use, which makes possible to organise regular workshops with our children. They enjoy working as it is very intuitive and they take great advantage of all its possibilities. Teachers find the citycamp package perfect for preparing our young engineers.”
