Tuesday Electronic Circuits and Code Scavenger Hunt
Wednesday Hydraulic Robotic Arm, Day 1 and Robot, Follow Order
Thursday Hydraulic Robotic Arm, Day 2, and Orienteering
Friday Build A ‘Bot and Water Relays & Fun
Tuesday – We’ll open with understanding basic electric circuits. Using alligator clips the kids will get power to a motor and light, using different combinations. For exercise we will add in a ‘coding’ element into the scavenger hunt.
Wednesday – Perhaps the featured enrichment of our summer camps. Using syringes and cardboard the campers will make a hydraulic robotic arm. For physical play youth will be challenged to apply short directives to their human robot to accomplish a task to grasp a basic component of coding requirements.
Thursday – Yesterday was making the parts for the hydraulic robotic arm. Today they will make it functional. Even with modern GPS phones kids need an understanding of how a compass works. We’ve broken it down to simple understanding in Orienteering.
Friday – It’s a silly art robot build, but it allows for good understanding of how a robot is made. In our Friday tradition we will finish the camp with some fun water play.
Each camp hands out a certificate of completion to each camper!
