Design, build and program a game-playing robot at our coding & robotics camp!
Test your programming and design skills against other campers - complete robotics challenges throughout the week, both solo and in teams, to become the Robotics champion!
Construct and program autonomous and remote-control robots to play robot football, navigate obstacle courses, and compete in capture-the-flag, then add a laser tag cannon to take out your opponents' machines.
Sneak preview: We're working on a brand new Invent! robotics system and entirely new course for the 2024 events. It has in-built Wifi, stepper motors for accurate motion (and even drawing), Lego compatibility and much more. The pictures and video on this page currently show our V1 system but we'll update them in the new year with more details!
Continue learning and creating after the course by taking home the full robotics kit
Learn programming in Python, a professional programming language in high demand
Our unique robotics kit and tutorials are fully designed in-house by professional engineers
Learn coding and robotics using drag-and-drop programming for younger campers, and Python for ages 13+ (no experience required). As always with Tech Camp's summer coding camps, take home your robot, controller and robotics construction kit to continue creating at home.
You'll be working on your own robot and learning exercises for much of the time, but the week is interspersed with multiple group games where you come together with other campers to compare designs, compete, and learn from others.
Build your robot
You'll start by assembling your robot. It's a super-simple process and we'll guide you through it. You'll then try it out and learn how to use different sensor modules and motion control.
The main part of the course is a series of exciting programming challenges from a magnetic minesweeper game to fully autonomous maze-solving.
