Now in it's 10th year, Robot Academy is Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running Lego Robot Camp. This summer, the academy is hosting camps in seven locations: Dublin, Powell, Gahanna, Westerville, Granville, Grove City, and Marysville. At these action-packed summer camps, kids age 5-15 design, build, and program working Lego robots (using Lego Mindstorms EV3) to solve real-world challenges. Licenced teachers and world-champion Lego Robotics instructors guide kids through engaging and fun STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) activities. All teachers have passed background checks.
What's unique about our Lego Robot Camp? Lego robotics has become very popular in recent years, and imitation Lego Robot Camps have sprung up across the country. Our camp is the longest-running Lego Robot Camp in Columbus, and it's the only camp that's taught by actual world champion robot-builders and technology teachers. We also have the best student:teacher ratio in the industry, and because of this one-on-one interaction between students and instructors we're able to customize camp activities to the skill level of individual students. Finally, our camp is designed to build confidence. Every student is awarded a trophy and/or medal that recognizes specific accomplishments (no participation awards). Our students frequently leave camp saying "this was the best day of my life!" and "I want to be an engineer!"
