Tech Camp Wrap Up
Our two Tech Camps at ESF Ranney, Junior LEGO® Master Builders: Star Wars Adventures – An Intro to Engineering and Robotics 101, kicked off this final week with a bang!
Junior LEGO® Master Builders: Star Wars Adventures – An Intro to Engineering
In our Junior LEGO® course the campers started off the week learning about levers and three point levers. The Tech campers then implemented this knowledge in their future creations. Today the campers were challenged to build something that rolls in order to understand how wheels and axels work. The campers first drew out their designs then worked in small teams to build awesome race cars, motorcycles and tow trucks.
Over in Robotics 101 the Tech campers first brainstormed and learned all about how torque and speed can affect robots. They spent the majority of the week building their own mobile robots then tested how far they could travel across the room. At the end of the week the campers set their cars against each other in a battle bot challenge! Check out some of the footage below:
