Share

Rowan University will host a five-day, non-residential LEGO League summer robotics camp that integrates science, technology and engineering education, while teaching students to design, build and program robots using LEGO technology.

The LEGO League offers a junior camp for students ages 7-10 and a beginner and advanced camp for students ages 10-14. Both programs welcome any level of experience with robotics and programming. The LEGO League junior camp immerses students into FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) Programs and teaches basic robotic building and programming using LEGO WeDo 2.0.

The beginner and advanced group will learn to solve every-day real-world problems through exploration, teamwork and the use of different types of technology. Students will learn robotics using LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 and discover the LEGO building system and intuitive drag-and-drop programming software. During this time, students will work as a team to complete challenges and games. Students will leave camp with an understanding of the engineering design process and the skills needed to build and program competitive robots.

The LEGO League will hold four sessions running Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

July 8-12: Junior session

July 15-19: Beginner session

July 22-26: Beginner session

July 29-Aug. 2: Advanced session

Sessions will conclude with an open house for parents from 1 to 3 p.m. on Fridays to showcase projects and meet the instructors. 

The camp costs $330 per student, which includes the five-day session, lunch at the Rowan University dining hall and a tee-shirt. Rowan University employees will receive a discounted rate of $300 per student if logged in with Rowan email. To register visit go.rowan.edu/fllcamp.
