Robotics Camp

About Robotics Camp

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.

Camp includes:
  • Snack/Lunch each day.  (Please advise of any food allergies)
  • CHC Robotics T-shirt
  • Overview of the  2021-22 VEX competition game announced at the 2021 World Championship
  • Warm-up activities to meet other students interested in robotics (particularly good for incoming CHC freshmen)
