Campers with robot

Science-U’s partnership with Way Cool STEM Education continues in this year’s offering of the Nittany Bots camp! This camp will give kids the chance to use the latest EV3 kits to build, program, and test real-life robotics technology – and that’s not all! Students will also use motors, sensors, gears, wheels and axles, and many other tools to build LEGO robots using the WeDo and EV3 programs. By the end of camp, students will have the skills to build cool things from their imaginations, without instructions! Space is limited, so register early — we look forward to creating with you on your journey to becoming a master builder!
