Students will work with LEGO Mindstorms to explore the key building blocks for robotics, as well as acquire essential science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM) knowledge. They will build and program their very own robots and develop critical thinking, problem-solving and basic engineering skills by modifying and troubleshooting their code. Once finished we will be challenging each student to integrate programming and sensor technology to make their robots move, react and solve fun challenges, such as our very own version of robot wars!
The course will also cover 3D design and printing. Looking at how modern 3D printing works, students will learn design best practices before going on to looking at how they can create their own models. Once they've created their own designs we will print these using our industry standard 3D printers, before exploring the successes and failures of each piece of printing. With a little support and some tweaking each student will finish the course with their own finished 3D models! The skills learnt over the course of these workshops can kickstart a passion for engineering and design - preparing young coders for a possible career in these lucrative industries!
Information for parents
This course uses block-based coding, therefore experience with Scratch or other block-based languages would be beneficial but is not required.
First off we'll get to know our teacher and classmates through some great mini games. Once we're all friends, we'll be introduced to our activity for the day. Let's jump in to coding!
Now that we've had a healthy snack, we're ready to get right back into our activity. We'll carry on flexing our creative muscles by designing, coding and building our project.
After half an hour for lunch it's time for some offline, outdoor time. Students take part in activities ranging from inflatable obstacle course races to football tournaments, scavenger hunts to water games (fingers crossed for some sunny weather!).
Let's refocus after lunch and playtime by diving into building our robots!
It's time to finish off our project for the day and show it off to the rest of the class. Time has flown by - let's tidy up our work stations, pack up our things and get ready to go home!
Campers should not be brought to camp if they are displaying signs of illness. In the case of a camper who has become ill during camp hours, parents will be notified immediately to pick their child up. If a child misses a day or multiple days of camp because of an illness, credit towards another camp can be arranged for when they're feeling better.
You can cancel your camp booking up to 14 days prior to the start date. If you want to cancel your camp booking less than 14 days before, you can receive 50% refund or full credit towards future courses when cancelling between 13-7 days before, or full credit when cancelling less than 7 days before. If we are unable to run our camps, you will receive credit or a full refund. If you cancel for any reason you may be liable to pay the difference if our prices increase.
(Please note credit is only valid for 1 calendar year.)
What are you doing at camps with respect to COVID-19?
At BlueShift, our top priority is always the safety and wellbeing of our students, parents and staff. That's why we have thought carefully about our upcoming camps and what we can do to ensure we keep our community safe. Please read our COVID-19 Camps Policy Overview FAQ for more information on how we are doing this.
Please be aware these policies will be shared with you in more detail closer to the beginning of camp.
What does my child need to bring to camp?
Please bring snacks, a packed lunch, and a water bottle to camps each day!
For Explorers, Adventurers, and Innovators:
Please also bring a laptop! Using a laptop from home means your child can save their own work! If you don't have a laptop to bring, you can borrow one from us when you make your booking. An iPad will not be enough for most of our courses.
Do I need to install anything prior to the camp?
Please ensure that your child's laptop has a modern web browser such as Google Chrome installed. Any additional software will be listed above under "Information for Parents."
Can I switch camp dates incase holiday plans change?
Yes! Read our CampShift policy for more information.
