Lets build a working robot that kids can bring home at the end of the camp. And lets program the robot intuitively using graphical means and also the traditional classic way. This one-of-a-kind course teach kids robotic programming using unique approach. We first introduce and discuss all components needed for the robot build before actually building it. Once the robot is completed, we will program ( give intelligent ) the robot in 2 ways. The fun graphical drag n drop way and the traditional classic way.

This robotics class unlike others is fun, and engaging. It provides learning experience for kids who love graphical programming and also for kids ready to move on beyond graphical programming using professional programming language (c++). No prior knowledge of robotic programming is required for this course.
