Autonomous Robotics with Sphero RVR

RVR is Sphero’s revolutionary take on the programmable robot -- amazing  way to get a head start in autonomous robotics with the thoroughgoing Sphero RVR, packed with a diverse suite of sensors, and built for customization. Expand RVR's capabilities even further by connecting third-party hardware like a Raspberry Pi, Arduino, BBC micro:bit, or Sphero’s own littleBits. RVR is your mobile blank canvas. Code with it, build on it, and hack the robot of your dreams — then take it anywhere. 

  • Use Sphero RVR to learn coding and robotics engineering

  • Program your robot to complete tasks

  • Create basic AI behaviors

  • Develop problem-solving skills

 

The curriculum is designed for students and covers many foundational computer science and engineering skills that are not often taught in early childhood. These academic frameworks are taught through a series of powerful ideas: the Engineering Design Process, Robotics, Programming, and Sensors. Each Idea addresses foundational math, literacy, science, and art skills. 

If desiring a half day camp (9-12:00) Use can just register for Autonomous Robotics  - Sphero RVR half day camp only.

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.

  • At the end of week teams will have Robot battles competitions.

Friday Showcase
 

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
