Progressive curriculum week by week
Overview of the week
Arduino Engineering Robotics
In Arduino engineering camp, student will make autonomous and self- driving robotics cars and dive into programming and engineering using the Arduino microcontroller. This electrical engineering camp is best for somebody involved in learning to code and has a keen curiosity in electrical engineering.
They’ll design different types of circuits while learning how robots interpret inputs from sensors and commands from their human operators. They will learn about programming them using the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE).Using the Arduino IDE, you will use the C and C++ programming languages, along with Arduino’s supplied software library, you will write programs to perform multiple projects, and have your robot navigate its surroundings.
In this Camp, we have five levels:- - Level 1 - Make The Car Move - Level 2 - Make autonomous Obstacle Avoidance Car - Level 3 - Make autonomous Line Tracking Car - Level 4 - Make Infrared Remote Control Car - Level 5 - Make Bluetooth car
Camper will then study how to take your circuits to the next level by building an Arduino Self-Driving Robotics from a provided kit and the Arduino micro controller. Camper will add distance sensors and infrared reflectance sensors to your robot so your robot can sense its environment, and participate in fun challenges: Maze Navigation Course and a Balloon Pop Battle!
If desiring a half day camp (9-12:00) Use can just register for Arduino Engineering Robotics camp only.
Be an Inventor
Be an inventor, work like an inventor. A fun Maker-Camp that introduces innovation. Become an Inventor and Engineer!
While working in teams, students learn basics of brainstorming, design and cost tradeoffs, and intellectual property. Teams compete in best designs for multiple challenge projects using material from class and/or home. Previous classes created Coaster Spirals, Robotic Arms, Scissor Lifts, Artist Robot, electric bowties, etc.
Life Skills building :-
- COMPLEX SYSTEMS
Entrepreneurs are simply those who understand that there is little difference between obstacle and opportunity and are able to turn both to their advantage. We work with our student to make them think and work on obstacle and make it an opportunity.
They will works on there ideas and make it work, bring it to market by creating some excitement within the business and outside in the marketplace. The idea is the starting point to becoming an entrepreneur.

Camp Key Elements
STEM based curriculum on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science, technology, engineering and mathematics
Camps curriculum is designed from beginner to advanced level
Hands-on experimental and exploratory study
The engineering design process and Arduino board (hardware) and the Arduino IDE (software)
Build electrical circuits using Arduino & electrical engineering
kids will learn strategies for “Critical Thinking, Lateral Thinking, Problems Solving, Designing Projects and Communicating Ideas”
They will discover basic physical science concepts such as gears, pulleys, levers, and wheels and axles
Students will be assigned with projects according to their grade and skills.
At start of each week teacher analysis the kids level and teaches everything necessary for a beginning or advanced student to next level to complete the course work.
At the end of each week, attendees can invite their family and friends to join us for a showcase celebration to share their final projects. Learn more about the fun and exciting activities your child experienced during the week and have an opportunity to meet your child’s instructor. Presentations vary by course topic and instructors will highlight some of the important concepts covered during the week and possible next steps to continue your child’s learning. Arrive early as showcase begins at 11:00 AM and is typically finished by 12:00 PM. Then we will start Fun Friday - Walking Movie, Ice Cream, Cookies, Games, Lots of fun
