CAMP ASPIRE (grades 3-8)

Ready to start a journey exploring robots, programming and AI? Jump into any one of our Beginner level camp courses to learn the basics of coding, robotics and more!

In each class, students will start by building and programming basic robots to do simple tasks and quickly progress to designing more complex robotic creations that will get them excited about engineering.  Students will learn the basics of programming through fun, hands-on exploration, and troubleshooting in the context of real-world scenarios. Throughout each course, students will be working towards designing and building their own custom robot while tackling different AI concepts.
