Target Audience: Ages 6-8 and Ages 9-14
Description: Our camps are 4/5-days, hands-on programs that focus on fundamental building and programming skills, games, and fun challenges using a variety of robotics platforms. Each camp will provide information on age appropriate competitions, and how to get involved and stay engaged in robotics! Camps are staffed by NASA’s college interns sponsored by the IV&V Facility and the WV Space Grant Consortium, and hosted at partner sites across the state.
Schedule: We are offering ½ day camp for students ages 6-8 years old, Tue.-Fri, 9am-12pm. Our full-day camp is for students 9-14 years old, Mon.-Fri., 9am-4pm. For both camps, you may drop off and pick up your camper ½ hour before or after the camp times.
• Ages 6-8, half-day 9am-12pm, LEGO® Coding Express and WeDo 2.0 Robotics.
• Ages 9-14, 9am-4pm LEGO® EV3, VEX IQ, and Parrot Mambo Drone.
Lunch: For F2F, campers must bring their own bag lunch, drinks, etc. We will provide a morning and afternoon snack.
Cost: We offer our F2F camps at a break-even or a loss and to ensure we are accessible to all students. We are asking every family that can afford it for a suggested donation of $50/student for the younger student ½ day camp, and $100/student for the older student, full-day camp. Both camps include snacks, use of robots, drones, tablets, and all materials. Checks should be made out to “Fairmont State University” and will be collected on your first day of camp at the registration desk. Note: If you can afford to donate more, your dollars will go to support another camper who is less fortunate.
