2018 LEGO Robotics Camp

LEGO Robotics Camp

ACME ROBOTICS (8367) is planning to offer a LEGO Robotics camp again in summer 2018. We are in the planning stages for the camp, but we have opened up the camp waiting list and you can sign up now to get on the waiting list and be informed first about the details.

To signup for the waiting list, simply send an email to: camp@goacmerobotics.com

Full details are on the 2018 LEGO Robotics Camp page.

The camp structure will likely be similar to last summer. A 5 day camp (half days), somewhere in Grass Valley or Nevada City CA. Cost will be similar to last year (~$125 per camper). We are also going to reduce the number of campers per robotics kit to enhance the experience for the campers (based on feedback from last year).

Campers will learn how to build and program a LEGO Mindstorm-based robot and then create a robot to compete in a competition at the end of the week. We want to encourage the creation of FIRST LEGO LEAGUE robotics teams at all of the various local elementary and middle schools next fall, so this will be a great way to learn about LEGO Mindstorms and see if robotics competition is something you'd like to experience!

ACME Robotics also recruited two attendees from the 2017 LEGO Robotics camp to join the ACME team. So it's also a great way to check out the ACME team and determine if you'd like to join us next season!

Sponsor the camp!

Local businesses: We are offering an opportunity to sponsor the camp and help defray the costs (and reduce the camper fees). If you'd like to discuss sponsorship opportunities, send an email to camp@goacmerobotics.com or contact Mike Oitzman (email below)
