University of La Verne Summer Robotics Camp 2017

We are proud to have opened up our new maker space on campus located in the Wilson Library. We would like to share this new endeavor by reaching out to the community by putting on this low cost beginner robotics camp for kids 7th to 12th grade. At the camp kids will learn basic 3D printing and modeling, coding, and robotics using the popular Arduinno Uno board and motor shield.  At the end of the camp your kids be able to take home a fully functioning obstacle avoiding robot that they will learn to make. Space is limited to 5 kids per session and there will be 2 adult instructors with them teaching them lending a helping hand while they work on their robot.
