Campers spent day 1 using the Microbit to learn the basics of interfacing physical hardware with coding. Campers worked through a series of modules, leading to their own invention that they will showcase on our final day. Click here to see all modules via our leaderboard, and click here to see the handbook that contains links to all activities. A few images from today are shown below.
During Day 1 of the STEM portion of "Soccer & STEM Camp", campers built ball pitching machine to experiment with the process of "gearing up". After building the same machine, campers were challenged to modify their projects to change the speed and/or structure of their machine. Today, Day 2, campers will apply their knowledge of gearing to build a Robotic Dragster. See a few images of Day 1 below.

Campers learned about "Gearing Down" by beginning the process of building a "King of the Hill" robot. Click here to learn more about competition specifics. See pictures of today's work below:
Campers learned about "Gearing Up" by building a device to shoot a plastic lego ball. Campers then applied their knowledge of gear ratios to a race begin the construction of a Drag Racing Robot. Click here to learn more about competition specifics. See pictures of today's work below:
