Along with several sports camps, De La Salle Collegiate High School is again offering its popular Robotics Camp to boys and girls entering grades 5 – 9 this fall. The camp offers hands’ on experience designing, building, and exploring the robotics field.
“Robotics is an exploding industry,” said DLS Admissions Director Bill Burkhardt. “We have waiting lists for our 45-minute Robotics workshop at every Spring Activities Night.”
Mr. Rob Black, one of the DLS Science Teachers who is also the moderator of the DLS Robotics Club, conducts the camp. “The camp is lots of fun for anyone who likes technology and working with their hands.”
The Camp is STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) based.
Each camper will have the opportunity to learn the skills needed to build and operate his or her own robot, the same “VEX” robots the high school students design, build and compete with at VEX Tournaments. To complete the robot, campers will receive guided instruction, but must also develop strategies and skills to complete the robot. They will be able to transfer these same strategies and skills to classes and careers in the science and technology fields.
Principal Patrick Adams said, “Our Robotics Camp is an important part of our developing STEM program. Mr. Black does a great job with the kids. It will be great fun!”
The Robotic Camp meets July 20 – 23, from 2 – 5 p.m., and costs $250. Parents should register their child online at www.thepilothangar.com
