/site/pics/538/161059/545411/787372/laptop.jpg

In this camp students will get started right away by following blueprints to build a fully functional laptop that will power on. Once the computer is built, students will learn about the inner working of computer electronic components such as USB and HDMI components and hard-wiring circuits while they traverse through an interactive game of Minecraft. Additionally, students will be tasked with designing and manufacturing a custom controller to connect to and play with the computer.

Apprentice-VEX Robotic Design & Programming Camp

/site/pics/538/161059/545410/787373/vex_robotics_2.jpeg

This VEX Robotics camp is designed to challenge students in both robot building as well as programming with ROBOTC. Students will build robots to compete in multiple challenges during the camp while using their imagination to make their
robot better than the basic robot. During the camp students will discover the Engineering Design Process in a real world setting as they test their robots multiple times.
