Participants will engage in hands-on experience, working in small teams (3-5) to construct and drive a VEX robot. Each camp team will have the assistance of an experienced Calvert Hall VEX Robotics Team 5588 member as a mentor. The robots will compete against one another in a camp wide tournament on the last day. Participants will learn brainstorming, collaboration, design, building, programming and driving skills.
Boys and Girls entering 6th through 9th grades are invited to attend.
