Junior Robotics with Edison: Program, Learn and Play!
Edison is a versatile bot that opens students’ imagination. Campers can make use of Edison’s Lego-compatible pegs and a handful of sensors to solve a variety of problems.  Edison can respond to barcodes to perform various predefined tasks or be programmed using a computer using one of a few different languages. We focus on using EdScratch, a block-based programming language that looks and feels like Scratch but is customized for Edison.

Afternoon (1 – 4 pm)
Fun Foundations: Dream Big, Build Bigger!
Come discover the fascinating world of engineering! Campers are challenged to create various builds using the engineering design process.  Build the strongest bridge, the most accurate catapult, and the tallest tower. We will finish with a blast, kids design, build, and launch their own bottle rockets!  Campers are encouraged to embrace challenges with a great deal of humour, curiosity, and courage because we believe that problem solving with a positive attitude fosters immense creativity. Let your imagination run wild!

July 13 – 17 (Ages 8 – 15)
Morning (9 am – 12 pm)
App Development using JavaScript
Ready to build and share crazyfun apps!  App design has exploded over the past 5 years due to lower costs and easier access to essential tools, so give your engineer the knowledge to stay ahead in today’s technological society. Join this unique experience in which you get to code in JavaScript, test, and create your own apps in real-time using an easy-to-understand format. The best part about this week is that they’ll be able to save their created apps right to their (or your own) devices for play anywhere, anytime!

Afternoon (1 – 4 pm)
Master Machines: Explore the world of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering!
Campers get your thinking hats on, you are introduced to the concepts of circuit design, building, and testing through various hands-on engineering activities. You will use the Engineering Design Process to design, create, test, and improve a variety of machines and mechanical systems.  The young engineers will design, build, and test electric magnets and flashlights. ] The fun continues as they explore the concept of force, trajectory, and friction through designing and building hydraulic arms, launchers, rubber band racers and more! The best part, you take home all your builds to share with family and friends.

July 27 – 31 (Ages 5 – 7)
Morning (9 am – 12 pm)
Dino Bots
Our young camper will play and learn with Lego WeDo and get a unique opportunity to revive the prehistoric world!
We introduce children to the classification of dinosaurs, when they lived, why they disappeared, the periods of the prehistoric world and more. Give your children an unforgettable camp journey into the prehistoric world of dinosaurs!  Together we will foster a love of science, exploration, and nature!

Afternoon (1 – 4 pm)
Spy Training Camp
Do you love solving mysteries and looking for clues? This is Your Camp!  Kids become cadets in a Spy Training Academy and solve daily mysteries. Along the way, they explore disguises, secret codes, spy gadgets, disappearing ink, chromatography, fingerprint analysis, forensic chemistry, sign language, secret compartments, night vision, spy cameras and so much more! This camp encourages learning in chemistry, physics, engineering, biology, forensics, creative thinking, problem solving and teamwork

July 27 – 31 (Ages 8 – 15)
Morning (9 am – 12 pm)
Drones Camp
Take to the skies!  Housing a thrilling, hands-on aerial robotics platform, this camp is the perfect introduction to the world of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs).  In this indoor camp, safety is a priority as students learn to code their drones to accomplish cool challenges such as flipping forward and backwards!  Campers master basic piloting skills, construct an obstacle course to fly through and stage a final race to showcase their cumulative knowledge. Putting critical thinking to the test, the camp also has students brainstorm ways drones could be used for good, sketching out their ideas for new and innovative drones and drone uses

Afternoon (1 – 4 pm)
EV3 Robotic Games Summer Camp
Warm-up your bots – The Robo Games are in Calgary!  Do you love Lego? Do you love robots and have a passion for adventure?
This is YOUR camp!  Build, wire, and program your own robot to compete in various games. Customize and program your robot to complete an obstacle course and challenge other team robots in the ultimate Sumo Bot Battle! Learn valuable skills in coding, problem-solving, and engineering while designing your robot to meet every challenge. LEARN, PROGRAM and PLAY!
