This unique one week camp is designed to foster your child's problem solving skills and creativity as they are introduced to the world of Robotics! During the course of the week campers will build and program robots that will compete in a Sumobot challenge at weeks end. This camp will also include an introduction to computer coding, a skill that will help your child develop logic, cooperation and communication as they become empowered to develop their own video games. Spaces are limited in this specialty camp, register early to reserve your spot! 

This is CBC documentary film called "Code Kids." At min 16:45 it describes what we will be covering during Robotics camp! 

Here is a short video describing the importance of teaching Canadian children how to code
