Mini Robots – Mega Fun (Grades 3-5)

The toy designers at the Attic have created a fleet of notebook sized remote control robots on which teams of students can build a variety of mechanisms and constructs to engage in numerous activities. In this camp, each student will be assigned his or her own mini-bot platform to use for the week. Each day the class will presented with a new competitive challenge to be completed during that class period. Players will engineer and construct gadgets to accomplish these challenges, attach their inventions to the robots and then engage in competitive events using their inventions. Trophies will be awarded to the winner of each daily challenge, but the real prize will be the fun and learning that goes on in this highly creative, engineering intensive class.
