Summer Camps

For students ages 10-14, instructors mentor students in a 4 to 1 ratio using the VEX IQ robotics kit. Students work in pairs to build robots that compete in robotics sports tournaments throughout the week. It’s a sports camp that gives students a head-start academically, and develops technology skills that will benefit them for the rest of their lives. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never built a robot before, or if you’re an experienced pro. Bot Camp is for you!
