2015 LEGO Robots Summer Camp (Expired)

Do you know anyone between the ages of 9 and 14 and who likes LEGO & robots?  Please spread the word!

The Department of Computer Science is once again offering a week-long LEGO Robots Summer Camp (with LEGO Mindstorm EV3 robots) for campers in Grades 4-8 (approximately ages 9-14), beginning Monday, July 20. Please choose morning OR afternoon sessions.  There are still places available!

Saskatchewan has become an official region for the FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) LEGO League.  Students here will join about 200,000 other students from over 70 countries around the world. The first FLL Saskatchewan Provincial Championship will take place on Saturday, December 5 at the University of Regina.

If you think that the FIRST LEGO League may be of interest to someone you know, this summer camp is a great way to learn more.  Please visit http://firstlegoleague.org for more information about the FLL!

Campers will build and program robots to complete tasks from the 2014 FIRST LEGO League "World Class? challenge robot game.  To participate,  campers do not need to have prior experience with FIRST LEGO League, nor be on a team for the upcoming Trash Trek challenge.

Robots and refreshments provided.  Only enthusiasm is required :-)

The camp will be held in CK 185 (Centre for Kinesiology and Health Studies).
