Timing: 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM Tools: Mindstorms EV3 Software, LEGO EV3 Robotics Kit
Progressive curriculum week by week
Overview of the week
Advance Lego Robotics
In Advance Lego Robotics Camp, students will design, build, program and test robots that can complete various tasks, respond to environmental changes and compete in tournament. LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 helps us bring technology, science and computer programming to life with hands-on, project-based STEM learning.
The curriculum is designed to polish students STEM skills :
Make applied math more meaningful with LEGO Education EV3
Explore and understand science with LEGO®Education EV3
Inspiring the engineers of tomorrow
Classmates work in pairs or individually to complete projects and compete in a tournament. This Camp and Curriculum is designed to help child prepare of First Lego League(FLL) competitions. Course will focus on the engineering design process, building, and programming using EV3. Students will work on similar missions and tables like the First Lego League.
If desiring a half day camp (9-12:00) Use can just register for STEM Robotics Geeks 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
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.
Get ready for FIRST LEGO LEAGUE Competition.
At the end of week teams will have Robot battles competitions.
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

Frequently asked questions
Is programming experience required for this course?
No piror experience is required
What you mean by Progressive curriculum week by week?
How many weeks of camp can students take in the summer?
Students can register for as many weeks of camp as they would like. As we are progressive camps, which means student will advance to further levels as student masters the concepts. We encourage you to register for at least two week, its build the strong fundamental on the subject. And as per student experience, you can add more weeks (depends on availability of slots)
If a student already has some experience, are different skill levels accommodated in the course?
Instructors and TAs are always willing to modify and customize the curriculum to make sure that all students are engaged and challenged. The first day or so will be utilized to gauge students’ individual skills and strengths. We also have advanced extensions for every course, so teachers can challenge advanced students.
How many weeks do students normally register for?
STEM4kids offers progressive curriculum between the weeks. Normally students register for minimum two weeks camp on particular subject in order to experience our Academies, which are an in-depth pair of courses that build upon student knowledge week after week. Then student can either continue to choose to work on Advance course on same subject or try our other amazing camps for well balanced approach.
What if the content is too easy or too hard once the course begins?
STEM4kids courses and curricula are built to accommodate a wide range of ages and abilities. This, along with a very skilled instructional staff and low student-to-staff ratio (average of 12:1), allows us to individualize lessons, customize the learning experience and offer plenty of personalized, one-on-one time for each student. If you have a particular goal or project idea, instructors will work with you and guide you to help you achieve it.
Do the student need to bring own laptop ? What kind of computers do student need to use in your camps?
We will provide the laptops to the kids, but if kids wants to bring thier own laptop, they can. Student can bring either Windows or Mac computers in the classroom
Who is my main point of contact while the camps are running?
The main point contact at camp is the Camp Director. You will receive information with the camp director’s name and contact information closer to the start of the program.
Do the student need to choose multiple week in continuous?
No, we maintain the kids progress. Student can take a break and come back. For example student joined us for two week of camp, then took a one week break for vacation, and join us back, totally fine. We will take care of it.
What is difference between half day and full day camp?
Half day camp timing are from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM and Full Day camp timing are from 9:00 AM - 3:30 PM. Morning Camp will be Advance Lego Robotics and Afternoon Camp will be Invention & Entrepreneurship
Do students get to keep their robots after class is over?
Unfortunately, no. EV3 kits are re-used by other classes week after week.
