New and improved for 2019! Test your programming and design skills against other campers - complete robotics challenges throughout the week, both solo and in teams, to become the Robowars champion!

Construct and program autonomous and remote-control robots to tackle robot football, obstacle courses, and capture-the-flag, then add a flipper and a laser tag cannon (new addition for 2019) to take out your opponents' machines.

Using the Invent! micro:bit controller, 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, take home your robot, controller and robotics construction kit to continue creating at home.

 
  • Learn core programming concepts using the micro:bit ecosystem
  • Compete in a series of robotics challenges from robot football to the flipper showdown, to become the Robowars Champion!
  • Ages 9-13 learn programming in a drag and drop environment
  • Ages 13-17 use Python, an industry standard textual language
  • Create complex mechanical assemblies with our custom modular kit
  • Battle against your friends by creating your own mechanical weapons
  • Take the full kit home to continue coding, experimenting and learning
