Beginning Robotics 3 Day Camp
This 3 day camp is an introduction to robotics using RC (Radio Controlled) components and other consumable supplies that one might find in their own garage. Campers will utilize the Engineering Design Process as they build a robot with other teammates. The robot will then be used to participate in a competition at the end of camp. The camp is a great way to prepare for the BEST (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) competition sponsored by New Mexico State University Department of Engineering. In addition to building a robot to compete in the task, students will work in a team environment, write an engineering manual, learn basic tool skills and be exposed to a variety of important engineering technologies. This STEM educational outreach program emphasizes Informal science education (free-choice learning), Project-based (inquiry-based) learning and Systems thinking. The camp is coordinated by Be Greater Than Average, LLC. and Dr. Shelly Gruenig, coach of the Award-Winning Rio Rancho Robo Runners (www.R4Robotics.org) and staffed by team members.
This camp is designed for students 10 and older and is staffed by experienced students from R4Robotics with the supervision of coach Shelly Gruenig and R4 alumni. It is a great opportunity to learn to work together with others, communicate ideas and develop leadership skills. It is a beginning camp designed to take all campers from their current level of knowledge and build on that. Be Greater Than Average, LLC. hosts camps for hundreds of students in our community and we have found it to be a very rewarding experience for students at any age and experience level!
Be Greater Than Average, LLC. robotic camps and workshops have been featured in our local newspaper. Workshops have been a great way to spread the word about R4 and B.E.S.T. and encourage the students in their love of science!
