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

Frequently Asked Questions

How do the satellite locations compare to the Winter Park location?

Students at each of our summer camp locations receive the same learning experiences with the same gear and equipment. However, students at our satellite locations receive a discount as our Winter Park location has access to Full Sail University’s campus. Because of campus amenities, our Teens’ Summer Camps are only available at Full Sail Labs Winter Park location.

What happens if a camp is cancelled?

Full Sail Labs reserves the right to cancel or postpone any camp due to insufficient enrollment or unforeseen circumstances. If a camp is cancelled, registrants will be notified immediately and refunds will be processed.

All cancellations and withdrawals are subject to a $100 cancellation fee per camp, per child. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can I choose more than a week?

You can join us for as many weeks as you like during the summer and even choose the same subject. Since each subject is tailored to your child's interests, they'll have a whole new experience.

Do you provide lunch and snacks?

Students need to bring their own lunch and a preferred snack. We’ll provide water and some healthy snacks.

Are there early drop off and late pickup times?

Early drop off is from 8:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. with late pick up available until 6:00 p.m.

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

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 to offer the spot.

How are refunds processed?

If you need to cancel or withdraw from a camp, please notify our office as soon as possible, either by phone or in writing (mail or email). A cancellation fee will be applied. No refunds are given after a camp begins.

Can my child take the same Summer Camp more than once?

Yes. Each camp has different roles, and we adapt to the interests of the child within the project.

How do discounts work?

Discounts will be applied after checkout.
