Robotics & Rocketry

Germantown Academy Summer CampGermantown Academy Summer Camp

Robotics

Campers learn about the fundamentals of robotics while working with the LEGO MINDSTORMS™ NXT kits. They learn how to use the provided software to program their design to complete the required tasks. The building kits contain all of the programmable sensors, motors, and gears necessary to keep the imagination flowing! We also spend one full morning exploring robotics by building a small "Make and Take" kit.

Grades: 5-9

Model Rocketry

There are so many interesting rocketry kits to build, and so little time! Campers spend this week building and launching two model rockets from kits and learn additional building skills and tricks of the trade. Kits will range in skill level (1-3) and style (e.g. helicopter return, egg lofter, etc.), to provide an assortment of fun!
