The Daredevils will be hosting a four-day LEGO camp at the Duluth Heritage Center for the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Duluth. The camp will run from August 16th through 19th. The camp will be three hours long, from 12:00 to 3:00. It will be identical in nature to our earlier LEGO camps, where our team members assisted children in constructing and programming a robot to complete a challenge, using LEGOs and EV3 Kits.
The Daredevils are excited to be hosting a third camp this year, and to work alongside the Boys’ and Girls’ Club of Duluth!

The last LEGO Robotics camp of the year came to a close! We had a terrific time helping the kids build and program their robots. They’ve all come a long way from the beginning of camp, and we’re proud of all of them. Thanks to all the campers for such a wonderful camp!
What a beautiful day for a summer festival! The Daredevils made a big splash at the 2016 Rhubarb Festival. Across from the rhubarb-lemonade stand, kids, parents, and grandparents all gravitated towards the robots on display. Kids had a blast driving the robots as well as interacting with them! They caught “boulders” from our 2016 competition robot Albion, or stacked totes with our 2015 competition robot Acervus, as well as learned about all of the different mechanics and functions and even posed with our robots. At one point, we even showed our Duluth PD our robots! We had so much fun interacting with everyone at the festival, and definitely can’t wait for next year!
