Summer Robotics Camps

Summer is quickly approaching and it’s time to set up summer camps. These Summer Robotics Camps are run by FIRST Robotics Team 2512, the Duluth East Daredevils. These camps are designed to create an environment where creativity and problem solving thrive. Students will engage in the engineering and design processes with additional help from some of our student team members. These five day camps will take place at the Duluth East High School in the Media Center/Library.

Who: Students ages 9-12

Dates: June 19-23, 2017  and July 10-14, 2017

Time: 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.

Location: Duluth East High School Media Center/Library

The cost of this five day camp is $100.00 with snack and souvenir fan shirt included.  Checks can be made out to “Duluth East Daredevils Summer Camp”. 

Students will be using the LEGO® MINDSTORMS® kits and software in groups of two or three. They will design, build, and program a robot to accomplish certain assigned tasks. On Wednesday, the students will be given a more difficult task that will culminate on Friday.

Even if you have no experience using the MINDSTORMS® software and pieces, you are still welcome as we will be teaching everyone the basics on both Monday and Tuesday. On Friday, all parents are welcome to come and view their child’s creation.

On the last day, students will also have an opportunity to drive one of the Daredevils’ robots. These robots will give the participating students an opportunity to drive a full scale FIRST Robotics Competition robot.
