Lego WeDo Robotics Camp

Take a love of building with Legos to a new level as we add motors, sensors and coding to make creations that move and react!

RISING 2ND – 4TH GRADE STUDENTS
Join Lehigh Valley CORE this summer for LEGO WeDo Robotics Camp. Student will work with a variety of robots including Ozobots and Lego WeDos.  Using motors, gears, blocks and sensor, students will learn, create, and code robots to complete a series of challenges.

FALL FLL JR: Students who enjoy WeDo Robotics Camp are encouraged to join a team for the FLL Jr fall season. Learn more about FLL Jr at https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/flljr

July 20 – 27:  9:00 – 12:00
$250/week
Rising 2nd – 4th Grade Students
Held at St Thomas More School
(1040 Flexer Avenue, Allentown, PA 18103)

CODVID PRECAUTIONS:

  • In an effort to prevent sharing, we will limit our camp to 14 students so each will each have their own robot and iPad or laptop to work with for the week.
  • Students will also be given a container of lego pieces that they will work with for the week. We will not work from a common set of pieces as is our normal approach.
  • Our space at St. Thomas More has a separate entrance and bathroom so students will not be mixing with students in other programs.
  • We will go outside for a mid-morning snack.
  • Sanitizer, wipes, and all other health precautions will be followed.


LEGO MINDSTORMS Robotics Camp

RISING 4TH – 8TH GRADE STUDENTS
Lehigh Valley CORE presents LEGO Mindstorms Robotics Camp this summer for students who love technology and enjoy robotic challenges. Students will work with Lego Mindstorm EV3 robots to harness the power of motors, sensors, gears, and programming to complete daily challenges.

Students are encouraged to join us to explore robotics and/or prepare for the fall FLL competition season. Learn more about FLL at https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll

CODVID PRECAUTIONS:

  • In an effort to prevent sharing, we will limit our camps to 16 students so each student will each have their own robot and iPad or laptop to work with for the week.

ANIMATION

Additional Section Added

Learn or improve your digital art skills as we create gifs and videos using a wide variety of animation techniques.

WHAT: Students will be introduced to the fundamentals of animation including bounce, wind-up and throw, parallax, story boards, and close-ups. Each session will teach a concept or two, provide time for students to create with a teacher available for help and encouragement, and offer opportunities to share projects. The six sessions will culminate in a Film Fest on Wednesday, July 8!

Colors and Loops

PYTHON

Beginning students will use python turtle (an introductory graphics package) to learn the basics of python commands, colors, loops, random and lists.
Continuing students, who have a background in turtle from the spring or other python classes, will continue in turtle to explore more sophisticated structures such as looping through lists, for loops, increasing and decreasing values of variables and more.

Tuesdays and Thursdays
June 23 – July 9
Beginner Level:10:00 – 10:40
Continuing Level: 11:00 – 11:40

Challenges will be given after each class to provide additional practice between sessions

WHO: We invite rising students in grades 5 and up. Please keep in mind that we are not block coding and a student must type with attention to detail. Some students are ready for this challenge and others might find it frustrating. Please consider your student’s focus before signing up to join us.

WHAT YOU NEED: You will need a laptop or iPad that is able to program in python. If you are using an iPad, you will need to download the Pythonista 3 app which costs $9.99. On a computer running Windows or IOS, you can download Mu for free. We will send along the directions.
