2017 Spring & Summer Break Camp

To register, please open this Active Network Registration page – https://campscui.active.com/orgs/AmericanRoboticsAcademyNorthHouston

American Robotics Academy specializes in engineering, using LEGO® Technic bricks. 

Our lesson only starts AFTER a student builds his/her model.   
We change/modify/challenge the robot and our young engineers.  
We focus on learning, in a non-competitive environment.
Every student gets to build his/her robot or in teams. 

Our classes help students understand “how things work”, using LEGO® elements and other products to demonstrate the principles of mechanical, electrical and hydraulics engineering, through hands-on, interactive activities.  Students learn a variety of ways to design robots for a diverse range of activity-based challenges.  From concept to design, students will see their robot come to life.

Junior Student (Age: 5 – 8) Robotics Spring Camp

Overview:
During this one week long program, your children will be very hands-on to learn mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems through the LEGOsTM Technic Building Materials and other great products we have deliberately chosen.  In addition, they will be very thrilled to learn basic computer programming through our unique “CubetorTM” rescue mission method and alike.

We want your children to become the next Leonardo Da Vinci! Using LEGOs, students will be introduced to Da Vinci’s inventive machines. This is your chance to be challenged with projects built around creativity, design and engineering. Leonardo created and improved upon the greater mechanical wonders of the world! Inventive minds will be able to build Odometers, Lifting Jacks, and not to mention the inspiration for the HELICOPTER. Join with us as we aspire to relive the excitement of Leonardo Da Vinci.

You child will learn and design electrical circuits to drive a robot with batteries, motors, RI technologies for remote controls and so on.  They will build wheel fast vehicles and powerful belt driven construction machines… 

For the computer programming part, your children will use our unique “Cubetor” programming board to program robots to accomplish various challenging missions.  They will start to comprehend how programming works, understand how to create commands for event after event…  Before they could embrace on the LEGOs Mindstorm EV3 Programming language, this shall be a must to prepare their minds for real coding works.

 

Senior Student (Age: 9 – 15) Robotics Spring Camp

Overview:
During this one week long program, your children will be very hands-on to learn mechanical, electrical and hydraulic systems through the LEGOsTM Technic Building Materials and the VEXTM Robotics Build Genius System we have deliberately chosen.  In addition, they will be so thrilled to learn the cutting edge LEGOsTM Mindstorm EV3 computer programming, which in recent years has become the main FLL (First Legos League) worldwide competition system used among young students.  This is a LabViewTM based graphic-aided computer language, with very friendly user-interface, very easy for this age group of students to learn and extremely powerful to use.  LabViewTM programming language is widely used in industrial automation worldwide too.

Besides Levers, Trebuchets & Catapults in the morning, DaVinci Inventors in the afternoon, your chidren will also build advanced transmissions, vehicles and machines.  We will assess your child’s ability individually, then give him/her specific curriculum to inspire and challenge.  Besides using the LEGOs building materials, we will have your child to work on the more challenging VEXTM Robotics Build Genius System.  Many high schools in our district and others, students use the VEXTM system to learn robotics technologies.  Here, we’d like to present it to your gifted and talented elementary or middle school aged children.

You child will learn and design electrical circuits to drive a robot with batteries, motors, RI technologies for remote controls and so on.  They will build fast wheel driven vehicles and powerful belt driven construction machines… 

For the computer programming part, your children will use the cutting edge LEGOsTM Mindstorm EV3 computer programming to accomplish various challenging missions.  They will build very advanced robots then start to create commands for the robots to take on challenging tasks… 

Note: Even though between some weekly sessions there might appear the same program names, in our actual education program, we will have different depth of technology and engineering principles to be applied by our children under our inspirational guidance…  Your kids will never feel bored and never repeat the same experiment or exploration…
