ILITE Robotics Camps
The camps below are hosted by ILITE Robotics. Questions or concerns about these camps should be directed to Gail Drake at firstname.lastname@example.org.
*The Cyber Defense Camp will span 5 days, June 27th to July 1st.
LEGO EV3 ROBOTICS
Students who attend ILITE’s LEGO EV3 Summer Camp design,
build, and program awesome robots using state-of-the-art LEGO
robotics technology: the powerful MINDSTORMS EV3 system. This
exciting robotics camp challenges students to push robots to the
limits by completing various tasks. The capstone of the camp is a
mini competition. ILITE’s LEGO EV3 Camp gives students the
opportunity to learn and have fun at the same time.
In this camp, students learn simple machines and states of matter
through participation in a variety of experiments. This fundamental
knowledge is taught in fun and exciting ways. Students leave with a
deeper understanding of how the world around them works while
sparking their curiosity in STEM.
Student minds come alive in STEM 2 as they are submerged into a
multitude of fun and exciting STEM subjects. Projects range from
density to light and power to chemical reactions. Students dip their
toes into STEM through fun individual and group experiments and
demonstrations. This camp is an all-time favorite of both students
and parents. Reserve a spot early to make sure your child does not
miss out on their imagination coming alive!
ILITE’s Cyber camp puts middle and high school students in the
position of newly hired IT professionals tasked with managing the
network of a small company. Students are given a set of virtual
images that represent operating systems and are tasked with finding
cyber security vulnerabilities within the images and hardening the
system while maintaining critical services.
GIRLS IN STEM
ILITE helps girls discover the world of STEM through wearable technology and hands on math
and science activities. From sewing circuits onto shirts to creating perfume in a chemistry lab,
girls are immersed in learning about this technical world. Several women executives talk to the
girls about the importance of girls in STEM leading the future of the field.
This year we are adding a new camp! Our Boe-Bot Camp challenges
older students to learn a basic robot works, introducing them to the
vast world of electronics in a prototyping format and how to
program a robot in BASIC. Students will be taught and build their
own sensory arrays to help their robot navigate the environment,
running on code they write. Electrical components include infrared
range finders, tactile whisker sensors, servo motors and LEDs. This
class is perfect for EV3 pros that want a challenge or learners that
want to explore how programming and electronics interact in the real world.
BASICS OF PROGRAMMING
This camp is for beginner programmers or anyone who
wishes to learn how programming works. This would involve
graphical drag-and-drop programming to develop basic
programming knowledge and logic and build a link between the
writing of text-based programs.
