  • Camp Description

    Domo arigato, Mr. Roboto! The field of robotics is absolutely booming. Everything from cars to thermostats and appliances are all tied to robotics and hardware engineering. If you’re excited by the thought of being an Aerospace engineer at NASA or designing the next robotic creation, then you can get a nice start on the right path with our camp.

    Teaching Platform

    Robot Programming Coding Camp at theCoderSchool This camp will employ actual robots to allow its campers to be able to physically interact and program them to perform actions. Throughout the week the campers get familiar with their robots and will complete exercises that allow them to control the robots. It generally will culminate in a robot competition whether it’s racing through a maze or a timed activity. mBot is a STEAM education robot and is the standard robot for this camp. Check with your specific location as some locations may program with another bot. Depending on the location, campers may get to take their robot home with them at the end of the week.

    Concepts Learned

    Campers will get a chance to get hands on experience with their robot. They will get to assemble it from scratch and integrate it with a computer for programming. Once they’ve got it built and integrated, they will learn how to give it basic commands and expand from there to program complete tasks. Robotics concepts learned will be things like event detection, automated robot motion optimization, and much more. Our standard mBot camp uses an easy to learn interface based on Scratch. Campers already familiar with Python may be able to use that to program the bot as well.

    Skill Level

    RoboCode is aimed towards our beginner/intermediate coders. No coding experience is required, but intermediate logic skills are needed.

    What is theCoderSchool? We are an after-school drop-off (and virtual) program for kids learning to code - a coding school! There's after-school kung fu. There's after-school music lessons, sports, art, tutoring, Chinese, you name it, it's out there. But coding for kids? We're among the first of many, and the largest in Silicon Valley with more locations on the way around the country. The future will be ever more dependent on technology so let's get our young generation ready. Learn to Code, Change the World®.
