Contact 1: Erin Chesnut
MARTIN, Tenn. – The University of Tennessee at Martin Jackson Center will host a final round of robotics camps July 23-27 for children ages 5-14. Camps are enrolling now and seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registration is $155 per student.
WeDo Robotics Camp is designed for children ages 5-7 and will be held from 9-11 a.m. each day. Teams of students will work together to design, build, control and program simple robots to complete challenges. Children will learn about simple computer coding and sensors as well as teamwork and critical thinking.
Advanced NXT Robotics Camp is for students ages 8-14 who have already participated in an NXT Robotics Camp session, either this year or in a previous year. Advanced camp will be held from 1-4 p.m. each day and will focus on a Mars rescue challenge. Camp participants will use advanced elements such as belts, beams, axles and special connectors to conquer new challenges.
Because of the cost of each robotics kit, children will not be able to take kits home at the conclusion of camp. However, product information and pricing will be made available for families who wish to purchase their own kits and components.
WeDo and basic NXT Robotics Camps will also be held at the UT Martin Parsons Center July 10-14.
Visit utm.edu/robotics and choose the Jackson location for more information or to register online. Online registration is required prior to attending camp, and payment is accepted via Visa, MasterCard or Discover.
