DATES: July 6 – 10, 2015
Ages: 9 -12 / 9am – 3pm
Explore the world of autonomous robots, programming and mechanical engineering to design and build art robots using the LEGO Education EV-3 Mindstorms platform. Students learn the basics of programming and how to build simple, structurally sound robots. We add attachments with pens and brushes to create designs, signs, and other robot art. Perhaps you can program a Van Goghbot or a Monetbot. Artwork is yours to take home and students will make video and photographic footage of the robots engaging in art through programming.
