MINDSTORMS INTRODUCTION 

Mozek Games
Our NXT Camps are designed for students in grades 3 through 6, building on foundational robotics concepts and advancing to team challenges by the end of the week. We will advance together through different levels of programming sophistication as we work through the sound, light, touch, and ultrasonic sensors. Students combine what they have learned to make dragsters and sumo robots by the end of the week. It is our specific objective to provide a meaningful learning experience for students, preparing them for better preparation for active participation in FIRST LEGO League!
Session A: June 22–26 • 1:00–4:00
Session B: July 20–24 • 9:00–12:00 
Grades 3–6 • Cost: $210

MINDSTORMS: ANIMAL ZOO

Mozek Games
Our NXT Camps are designed for students to build on foundational robotics concepts and advance to team challenges by the end of the week. Students will work together in teams to move through different levels of programming sophistication as we work through the sound, light, touch, and ultrasonic sensors. Students combine what they have learned to make a zoo full of their own robotic animals.

MINDSTORMS FOR GIRLS

Mozek Games
Coaches will work with girls to give them their own challenges solving problems individually and in teams. There will be creative use of materials and ideas to generate solutions to problems. Some of these problems may include Robot rescue, coordinated designer robots, and overcoming obstacles (among others). Have fun while learning engineering skills and problem solving methods.
August 10–14 • 1:00–4:00 
Grades 4–8 • Cost: $210

MINDSTORMS: GREEN CITY CHALLENGE     CANCELLED

Mozek Games
The Green City Challenge is ideal as a step-by-step introduction to robotics in the classroom or as preparation for robotics competitions. There are different levels of challenges for different students. Training mats provide a field where students can test and practice their programming skills. The challenge mat offers a real-life setting for solving different missions so students can apply the skills acquired through the training. Challenge descriptions guide the students from simple to more advanced programming. Students are then challenged to apply their programming and problem-solving skills by making their robots solve real-world engineering challenges related to renewable energy.
August 17–21 • 1:00–4:00 
Grades 4–8 • Cost: $210

MINDSTORMS INTERMEDIATE - ROBOTICS PROJECTS

Mozek Games

MINDSTORMS RESCUE BOTS & SOCCER  

Mozek Games
There are two major challenges that the young engineers will work on. First the students will build a path following robots and overcome various challenges to rescue a “victim” of a chemical spill. Students will upgrade their robots and software to overcome barriers, see-saws, and increasingly complex paths. Ingenuity, troubleshooting and teamwork skills will be utilized to solve these fun problems. As time allows, students will build soccer playing robots to remote control or play soccer autonomously by following an IR strobe light. There are challenges for the beginning to advanced roboticist.
