ROBOTICS LEVEL II

this year we are offering Robotics Level II for more experienced robotics & kids that have already taken a Robotics session with NERDIES™. This session will provide a much higher level of engagement by increasing the complexity of the robot’s design; adding new features; using a 3D printer to create more parts; and more intense programming.

Age Range:
12 - 16

Additional Session Description:

BUILD, PROGRAM, AND TAKE HOME YOUR OWN ROBOT!

NERDIES™ is once again partnering with MORE Technologies and the Tech Hogs Robotics team to bring you these two, unique opportunities. MORE technologies began at the University of Arkansas with Canon Reeves (Co-Captain of the U of A Robotics Team) who designed a customizable robotics kit for you to take home be able to keep programming after NERDIES™ is over.

Parent Description:
Robotics sessions challenge your child to design, build, redesign, rebuild, and then redesign and rebuild all over again in order to get better performance from their robot. Here are some of the questions and topics that will be addressed in our Robotics camps.
