Robotics

Kids 7–12

Robots are in our everyday lives, from our automatic pool cleaners and floor vacuums to flying drones. For the most part, they are used to routinely carry out complex tasks in the auto, medical, manufacturing, science, and space industries. In this camp, students will learn new curriculum and understand the role of robotics in our world by participating in multiple interactive, creative, and challenging activities—such as building a robotic arm out of everyday materials—that encourage a love of science, technology, and engineering. As students design, program, and control a fully functional robot, they will explore the essential characteristics of robots (sensing, movement, energy, and intelligence), learn the basics of electricity and circuits, operate microcontrollers, and apply their newfound engineering principles and computation thinking skills in a series of robotic challenges. Robotics make STEM learning fun and can pave the way for exciting technology-driven careers of the future. Ignite the inner engineer!

The student will

  • Explore real-world challenges and use robotics to investigate possible solutions
  • Identify the basic components of an electrical circuit
  • Identify the sequence of communication between the robot and the programmer
  • Plan, test, and modify sequences of instructions
  • Apply core STEM principles to program and control a fully functional robot
  • Implement the Engineering Design Process as they design, build, test and improve robotic functions

Final Project

Simulated Robotic Olympics where individual robots compete in events such as movement of objects, line following, sprinting in a race, and retrieving targets

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the qualifications of the Full Sail Labs facilitators?

All Full Sail Labs facilitators receive background checks with Level 2 FBI clearance, are CPR certified, and receive 100 hours of education before they fully step into their roles. They are trained quarterly on the tools and technology, best teaching methods and how to work with different learner behaviors. We also require all full-time facilitators to become certified Apple Teachers.

What does my child need to bring/not bring?

The only thing they need to bring is a lunch, their creative juices, and enthusiasm! Our lab environments are equipped with everything our students need to develop their creative projects.

What are your class sizes?

There is a 1:10 instructor to student ratio and our labs hold a maximum of 24 students for optimal learning. Since groups will be from 10 to 20, there will always be at least two instructors to teach and assist in project development for all students in the lab.

What housing/hotel accommodations do you have/recommend?

Click here for a hotel list. Many of the accommodations on our list offer a special Full Sail rate.

If the week I want is full, is there a waiting list?

Yes. For those classes that are already full, we will maintain a waiting list. To get on the waiting list, you must complete an online application indicating the session in which you are interested. Credit card information is required but will not be charged at this point. As spaces become available, the first name in the waiting list will be called and offered the spot.
