2023 Robotics Summer Camps
Our hands-on robotics camps are 4-day programs focusing on fundamental building and programming skills, games, and fun challenges. Each camp will provide information on age appropriate competitions and how to get involved and stay engaged in robotics. Camps are staffed by NASA ERC staff and college interns sponsored by the IV&V Program and the WV Space Grant Consortium, and hosted at partner sites across the state.
Our robotics camps are divided into two age groups:
Ages 6-8: Half-day camp (9AM - 12PM) – LEGO WeDo 2.0 and Coding Express
Ages 9-12: Full-day camp (9AM - 4PM) – VEX IQ and Drones
Space is limited, and we will cover the same material in each camp. We do not recommend signing up for two camps. The camps are a basic introduction to the platforms, so no experience is required. Coaches looking for guidance for more experienced students should reach out to schedule a coach/team training.
