Class space is limited to 18 participants. Registration form: http://somersetcolibrary.org/documents/robotSummerCamp2017.pdf
Electronics & Robotics campers will apply skills in science, technology, engineering, art and math through hands-on exploration, tinkering and inventing using electronic gadgets, gizmos, computer circuit boards, household items, and tiny smart robots that you program using color codes that you draw on paper or send through a computer as flashes of light.
Learn basic robotic, electrical, and programming concepts. Make motors whir, lights blink, and buzzers ring. Invent new gadgets and gizmos by connecting electrical components and household items. Draw a maze and program a robot to spin and turn its way through it.
A hot lunch will be provided through the USDA Summer Food Service Program.
Free Advanced Registration Required!
