3-D MODELING This one week comprehensive camp will introduce students to the two main strategies for 3D design: constructive geometry and 2D extrusion. Students will learn the constraints of 3D printing and design their own accessories for an existing robotics kit. They will have the opportunity to produce multiple printable objects or perfect a specific design. Children will have the opportunity to use their 3D modeling skills in the Robotics course offered the following week. Students are not required to sign up for both weeks. The classes will be taught in sequence, but can be taken separately.
ROBOTICS In this week-long camp, students will be introduced to sensors and control systems associated with modern robotics and will learn how to use code to autonomously navigate a physical environment. Each day they will reprogram their robot to react and perform differently given a set of constraints.
