    mBot iconIn this basic robotics camp, students age ten or above have loads of fun while learning to use a block-based visual programming language like Scratch to program Makeblock mBot robots. This camp also uses the paired programming method in which students work collaboratively in teams of two. In each session of this camp, students are presented computer science principles, complete unplugged activities and receive lessons including an introduction to mBot, remote controlling a robot, sensory feedback and information processing. Students will have fun racing their robots, playing mBot soccer, pushing other robots around with Sumo mBot and completing other challenges.
