A-Star Summer Robotic Camp is a unique opportunity for interested and talented middle school students to learn basics of robotics as well as to prepare towards the First Lego League (FLL) Challenge during summer. FLL Challenge is one of the most prestiguous competition in robotics field for middle school students in the world. For more information on FLL Challenge: https://www.firstinspires.org/robotics/fll. This camp is for students that are incoming 6-8 grades.
The students are guided and trained by expert faculty in a fun and challenging environment. It is a day camp which consists of hands-on activities using Lego Mindstorms Robot Kits while working on past FLL challenges. All Lego kits that are necessary for the class will be provided in the camp.
The only requirement is that the course is only for 6-8 grades (incoming middle schoolers) in 2018-2019 academic year. It’s not a requirement but strong math background is recommended.
