Four-day EV3/FIRST LEGO League camp develops strong building and programming skills essential for the FIRST LEGO League program for students 9 to 14 years old. The previous year’s FIRST LEGO League game (SUPERPOWERED) is used as a challenge to provide a fun activity while the students are learning.

Dates: Monday, August 12 – Thursday, August 15
Time: 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM
Location: Jewish Community High School
Price: $350
Recommended Ages: Rising 6th – 8th Graders

Simulated Tournament: SUPERPOWERED Robot Game (2022)

Students will be provided with a solid foundation in programming with the EV3 programming language. The class will largely be self-paced, with each group of students working to develop an understanding of the system and ultimately competing in a simulated FLL challenge by the end of the week. Experienced FLL students will have the opportunity to work deeper and develop a stronger set of problem-solving skills. The camp will be maxed at 12 students to allow a high degree of individualized experimentation and learning.

All camps are taught by experienced instructor, John Hagen, who has been working with FLL Robotics Competitions since 2007.
