Solve Problems, Build Bots

This summer camp inspires students to become the problem-solving heroes of tomorrow.

Campers will learn the fundamentals of robot design and programming, using the VEX IQ Platform ( The VEX IQ Platform is endorsed and supported in schools across the nation by NASA!

This program will be differentiated to engage learners of all levels, from those building their first robot to students who have already mastered the fundamentals and are looking for a design challenge. Return campers will dive deep into Vex programming, while first timers will create remote controlled bots to complete functional tasks and challenges.

Outside of the sTEAm Lab, campers will work in teams and complete physical challenges. Campers will also play organized sports after lunch each day to balance time spent designing and programing Vex Robots.
