DISCOVERY CAMP (Ages 7-8)

Learning Elements : Programming, Building, Design, 3D Printing

This camp is all about the Juniors who want to begin their journey in Robotics. A week of fun filled with engaging activities to learn the basics of robot building and programming. Students use multiple Robot platforms such as Lego WEDO, Lego Simple Machines, Dash. They also learn simple CAD design and 3D printing. At the end of the camp, they have created their own 3D printed robot which they take home.

BIONIC FINGER CAMP (Ages 9-11)

Learning Elements : CAD Design, 3D Printing, Coding, Electronics

Bionic Finger Camp is for students who are new in Robotics or have a bit of experience and like to try and create their own robot. Students use CAD and 3D Printer to design and build pieces of the robot. They will then assemble the robot. After connecting the motor and electronics, they assemble a flex sensor onto a glove and connect the sensor to their microcontroller. They will then program the robot in C language to respond to the sensor which is attached to the glove to mimic glove movements. Students keep the project at the end of the camp.

FLASH LIGHT CAMP (Ages 9-11)

Learning Elements : CAD Design, 3D Printing, Electronics

Flash Light Camp is an easier project in robotics which involves CAD design, 3D printing and electronics. It is recommended for students who prefer building over coding. The flashlight has a hand crank that creates energy (electricity) to light up the LED bulb. Students use CAD software to design and 3D print the pieces of the flash light. They will then assemble pieces and attach the gears to the hand crank. Once motor and electronics are connected, they can crank it to generate electricity and light up. Students keep their project at the end of the camp.

LEGO EV3 MINDSTORMS (Ages 9-11)

Learning Elements : Programming, Building

Consider this as an introductory course to programming. Students learn how to use block programming to create logical programs that they will then download to robots to make the robot autonomous. The Robots and the software used are by LEGO and are used in FLL (First Lego League) competitions. Students will go through multiple builds and programs starting from easy to more difficult programs.

PING PONG BALL LAUNCHER CAMP (Ages 9-11 and 12-15)

Learning Elements : CAD Design, 3D Printing, Coding, Electronics

A fun project in which students learn to use a CAD software to design pieces of a Ping Pong Ball Launcher. They will then 3D print the parts and assemble the robot. Students then use electronics to connect a micro controller to switches, joystick and motors. They will finally code the micro controller to aim and launch the ping pong ball. Students keep the project at the end of the camp.

DRAWING BOT CAMP (Ages 9-11 and 12-15)

Learning Elements : CAD Design, 3D Printing, Coding, Electronics

A project containing all elements of Robotics. This project is recommended for students who have a bit of background or have taken another Exceed camp before this one. Students use CAD software to design parts of the drawing robot. They will then use the 3D printer to create the parts and assemble the robot. Students connect motors and sensors to the microcontroller and code the microcontroller to move the servo motor to grip the pen, and code the stepper motors to move the robot to write letter and shapes. Students keep the project at the end of the camp.

IR BATTLE BOTS CAMP (Ages 12-15)

Learning Elements : Coding, Wireless, Electronics

This project is recommended for students who have some background in coding or have taken other Exceed Robotics camps before. In this camp, students assemble their rover and add their offensive/Defensive mechanism. They will then connect all electronics to the microcontroller for the robot and the joystick. Finally, they program the microcontrollers (Robot and Joystick) to use wireless communication to move the robot and activate the mechanisms. Students keep the project at the end of the camp.

NEOPIXEL WATCH CAMP (Ages 12-15)

Learning Elements : CAD Design, 3D Printing, Coding, Electronics

This project is recommended for students who have some background in coding or have taken other Exceed Robotics camps before. Students design pieces of the watch using CAD software and create using the 3D printer. They will then use a small microcontroller to connect to all LED lights and the button. Students program the microcontroller to tell the time by turning on the relevant LEDs. They can also program the push button to change the mode from watch to flash light. Students keep the project at the end of the camp.

GAME PROGRAMMING IN PYTHON (Ages 12-15)

Learning Elements : Coding

Game Programming is the science of creating games using coding. This camp is suitable for students who have no or little background in coding. The camp is focused mainly on Python programming language to create games that use mouse and keyboard to play. By the end of the week, students can use Python language to create simple games. the software is free and can be downloaded at home to continue improving the game or creating new ones. Concepts such as variables, data types, tuples, classes, events and flow structures will be taught int the camp.
