2016 Explore Robot Worlds with Lego

GameStudio at Boise State University is pleased to announce that it will be holding Robotics Summer Camp 2016. GameStudio is a research institute of the Dept. of Educational Technology @BSU. This camp has organized a three-week long Robotics Summer Camp.

In this camp, each student would make their robots using Lego NXT kits and they will learn how to make programs which make the robots move, make sounds and say some words! After students are get used to manipulate their robots, they will have many mathematical and entertaining activities with the robots. By making robots by themselves and doing various activities with robots, students will improve their creativity and problem-solving ability. This camp is geared toward grade 3-7 students who seek to learn Robotics with robot related games that are lots of fun. Through this camp, participants will be able to grasp an understanding of the concept of robot and programming skill to make robots move, make sounds, and say words. Our pursuit of this program eventually is to improve our students’ creativity and problem-solving ability by making robots and programs by themselves.
