ROBOT BATTLE LAB

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner

Intermediate

The start of your MakeX robotics journey

Advanced

Ages 10-14

Are you a Robo-Whiz? Would you like to become one? We’re training for the global MakeX Challenge and sending the winning team to China for the international championship! Working with the MakeBlock robotics kit, younger children learn the mBlock drag-and-drop visual programming environment based on Scratch, while advanced users code in Python or C++. Our curriculum provides hands-on collaborative and competitive challenges where students build robots and learn about electronics, mechanical design, code development and algorithms.

ROCKETRY LAB

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner

Intermediate

Learn the science of rockets

Advanced

Ages 8-14

When people say ‘it’s like rocket science’ they usually mean a hugely complex task. But rocket science is also hugely fun! Join us to explore the forces of physics and engineering that can send humans to the moon and beyond. Drawing on NASA and ESA (European Space Agency) teaching resources, students will build, test and launch their own rockets while learning about Newton’s Laws. Experiments will include aerodynamics, propulsion, 3D design, stability, safety and accuracy.

Skills & Technology Computerized airframe design | Propulsion | Aerodynamics | Basic flying skills

DIY LAB

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner

Intermediate

Technology for innovators

Advanced

Ages 8-12

DIY camp is an open format for students to develop their entrepreneurial spirit! Whether inspired by social impact, education or the arts, we design programming tasks to help realize their vision. With 3D printing, Lego, sensors, light and sounds we’ll create unique devices and experiments. Our previous projects have used Micro:Bit, CodeBug, and HaloCode to make boardgames, RobOlympics and digital art. Children will familiarise with visual programming software that’s as easy as snapping code blocks together like a puzzle.

Skills & Technology CodeBug | GlowBugs | Micro:bit | HaloCode | TinkerCAD | mBlock | Electronic components (LEDs, Motors, Sensors)

FLIGHT LAB

Let your dreams take flight

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner

Intermediate

Advanced

Ages 10-16

Does your child dream of airplanes and flying machines? This camp is made just for them! We’ll be using the FliteTest STEM platform designed to teach flying skills. Students will finish the week with a fuller understanding of propulsion, aerodynamics, computerized airframe design, and the basics of flight. In our down time, we’ll organize drone races, and self-made, 3D printed drones. And the best part of all – everyone leaves with their very own aircraft!

Changing lives with innovation

SKILL LEVEL

Beginner

Intermediate

Advanced

Ages 12-16

This is no ordinary 3D printing camp, this is using technology for humanitarian aid  ! Your child can be part of the Enabling the Future project which has donated over 6000 prosthetic arms to underprivileged children throughout the world. This highly focused camp teaches how a group of STEM students can come together and provide access to life-improving technology. Learning objectives include 3D design and printing techniques, circuitry, sensors, and open-source research skills.
