Code-a-Bot: Robot Wars

Engineer. Code. Test. Battle. 

Your child will design and build an EV3 LEGO robot. They will learn to use command tools to make complex programs including pathfinding algorithms and gyroscopic navigation. During the week they will test their robot in events such as Maze Mapper and Cube Control. At the end of the week, after making adjusts to improve the performance and durability, they will be ready to compete against each other in Robot Wars!

About this camp

An in-depth introduction to Robotics, from hands-on construction to algorithms and navigation. Code-a-Bot: Robot Wars will take your child on a theoretical and practical journey through engineering, creativity, problem solving, visual coding and lots more!

Using the latest LEGO technology, and our progressive curriculum, your child will be immersed in a series of demonstrations, exercises, and tasks. After a 360° orientation of the different sensors and motors available, your child will construct and customise their LEGO robot.

Progressing from construction into the world of coding using LEGO’s Mindstorms visual scripting tool your child will learn coding constructs such as branching and looping. Using these constructs, they will learn to implement advanced AI coding concepts.

At 4pm on Friday family and friends are invited to the Lego summer camp ‘Senior Grand Finale’ - where your child will prepare, code and fine tune their bot to participate and compete in three events that test speed, intelligence and robustness.
