About This Activity

Using cybernetic principles pioneered by Norbert Wiener (1894-1964), campers will build a robotic dog that can walk, sense obstacles and navigate around them, and perform other tricks. Herbivores eat vegetables. Carnivores eat meat. A photovore seeks out the brightest light. Campers will build a robot that will turn and roll to locate and bask in the brightest light possible. When it finds the brightest light in a location, it will stop and emit a purr (or burp) to show that it is content. NOTE: THIS PROGRAM RUNS MONDAY THROUGH THURSDAY FOR A HALF DAY. FRIDAYS ARE FIELD TRIP DAYS AND ARE THEREFORE FULL DAYS. UNLESS THE CAMP DIRECTOR GIVES YOU AN EARLIER ARRIVAL TIME, PLAN TO DROP OFF YOUR CHILD AT 9:00 AM ON FRIDAYS. UNLESS INSTRUCTED TO PICK UP AT A LATER TIME, PLAN TO PICK YOUR CHILD UP AT 4:00 PM ON FIELD TRIP DAYS. CAMP IS CLOSED ON FIELD TRIP DAYS AS ALL TEACHING STAFF/COUNSELORS GO ON THE TRIPS. Early bird Wow Tech weekly tuition is $120 plus $30 for field trip. Field Trip: Apple Center, NJ Field Trip on Friday, July 15 @ $30 is included in the pricing.
