Registration Open for Alamo Colleges 2014 Summer Robotics Camp
This summer the Alamo Colleges are
offering a one-week robotics camps. The Robotics camp is a fun-filled,
interactive hands-on experience that gives children an opportunity to design,
build and program LEGO Mindstorms NXT robots. The camp allows students to work
in small groups of 3-4 guided by an instructor and teaching assistant.
SpaceTEAMS is a program intended to generate interest in Science, Technology,
Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) careers. The camp will progress from
self-guided basic robot builds and programming to mini-challenges with a final
day exhibition performance by all groups.
These camps are made possible in part by
a donation from Rackspace Hosting. The camps hosted at San Antonio College are
for third through fifth graders although entering sixth graders may be
considered depending on the applicant pool.
