What's Included

In this class, we will teach your children about everything they need to get started with LEGO® MINDSTORMS® Education EV3 Technology. From the EV3 Brick, sensors, and motors, to the computer-based LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Software and tablet-edition EV3 Programming App. In contrast to two student per team, this program is for each students to have his/her own set of computer and EV3 Lego kits. Therefore the cost is higher for each student choosing this option. EV3 TECHNOLOGY We start off by introducing them to the programmable intelligent EV3 Brick. Then we take them through the various motors and sensors that they can connect to the EV3 Brick to transform it into your very own robot, ready to perform any task. Next, we show them how to connect their EV3 Brick to a computer or tablet and then explain the various functions and settings available in the EV3 Brick Interface. EV3 SOFTWARE we introduce them to the computer-based EV3 Software, including the installation process and various screens, tutorials, and tools. EV3 PROGRAMMING APP We introduce students to the various features and functions of the tablet-based EV3 Programming App. During the week long learning, students will be immersed in the following categories: Basics Learn how to control the Driving Base and trigger events based on input from the various sensors. The Introduction to Robotics Lesson Plan PDF covers most of this. Beyond Basics Grasp the fundamentals of more complex topics, such as program loops, switches, multiple switches, arrays, and data wires. Hardware Familiarize yourself with the Intelligent EV3 Brick and its assorted sensors and motors. Data Logging Master various Data Logging concepts, such as live and remote Data Logging, Graph Programming, and Dataset Calculation. Tools Learn how to use the various tools that are included.

About This Organizer

Our mission at American Robotics Academy® is to excite, inspire, and motivate young people about the fun, importance and impact of robotics technology in today's world. We hope to stimulate their imagination and creativity by encouraging them to explore, experience, and express themselves through our hands-on interactive robotics program. Held in a friendly, sports-like atmosphere, we focus on team-building, problem solving, creativity and fun. Students will be working with the widely known and popular plastic LEGO building blocks, including the more specialized pieces such as axles, gears, beams, wheels, motors, microcomputers, pneumatics and other parts that will enable them to safely create animated and exciting mechanical movements and other effects. The LEGO Technic System has been adopted as the standard material for robotic designers, because of their sophisticated and powerful set of mechanical design components. The fact that they can be disassembled and reconfigured as necessary is essential in testing, design, and instruction.

Our classes teach students to understand "how things work" through hands-on activities that demonstrate the principles of simple and motorized machines. They gain experience with design and problem solving through the use of gears, motors, wheels and axles, pulleys, and remote control devices. Working in age appropriate teams of three, students learn a variety of ways to design a robot to do the things they want it to do. They decide and build, as a team, the best design of their robot for the competition to be held at the end of each class session.

All American Robotics Academy camps are designed around a curriculum that enables students to take a full day/week program or choose to enroll in just morning or afternoon classes.

At American Robotics Academy® , we can provide the guidance and confidence to build simple working robots, as well as the inspiration for more complex robotic inventions.
