Project Description

Introductory & Advanced Robotics

Ages 7+

Students will build and learn to write programs for the Lego Mindstorm NXT robot and will work through a series of guided physical challenges with their robots to develop programming skills. Among these challenges are navigating a maze, learning to use sensors, seeking and retrieving objects, and SUMO-bots. Students will engage in the Engineering/Design process, as they modify their robots for new challenges.

The robotics program is being run by Extreme STEAM Science Kids established by the Park Shore Country Day Camp located in Dix Hills, Long Island. Our curriculum has been created by Julian Aptowitz, a high school physics teacher for over 20 years with a Masters degree in Education Technology, as well as a high school robotics coach. Extreme STEAM Science Kids provides programs in robotics, engineering and Life, Physical and Earth Science. Through curriculum that meets the next generation science standards, elementary students will be engaged in authentic scientific experimentation, as well as become excited and energized to develop the skills necessary to be successful in the 21st century.
