2024 Robotics Summer Camps


All camp sessions are now full. Waitlists are available through Eventbrite using the links below.


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.

June 18-21: Marshall Advanced Manufacturing Center, Huntington

There will be a parents' meeting on Monday of each week at 6PM to discuss logistics, meet with the staff, and collect donations. Camp will run from 9AM-4PM Tuesday through Friday.


We suggest a donation to cover our costs. The suggested donation is $50/student for the half-day camp (ages 6-8), or $100/student for the all-day camp (ages 9-12). This includes a morning and afternoon snack, use of robots, tablets, and all materials. Full-day campers must bring their own lunch.

Donations will be collected at the parent meeting and on the first day of the camp. We can accept cash or checks made out to Fairmont State University.
