We Build Confidence!

Each student wins a special trophy, ribbon or medal (not a participation award, mind you) by accomplishing hands-on building and programming challenges (with the help of our talented and patient instructors)

Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running Lego Robotics Camp

The academy hosts a variety of technology camps in seven locations near Columbus (Dublin, Gahanna, Westerville, Grove City, Pickerington, and Marysville).  At these action-packed summer tech camps, kids age 5-16 design, build, and program working Lego robots (using Lego Mindstorms EV3) and invent contraptions using 3D Modeling/Printing. It's the ultimate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) experience.

What's unique about our Summer Tech Camps? First of all, we're the only camp that combines Inventing and 3D Printing with Lego Robotics. We're also the only camp that's taught by actual world champion robot-builders and technology teachers (all teachers have passed background checks). We have the best student:teacher ratio in the industry (6:1), and this one-on-one interaction with students helps us to customize camp activities to the skill level of individual students. Our students leave camp saying things like "this was the best day of my life!" and "I want to be an engineer!"

Is your child a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or Cub Scout? Cool! Our Morning and Full-Day summer camps fulfill the requirements for a robotics badge. Schedule a 2 hour BattleBot event at your meeting location to earn a Girl Scout STEM badge or Boy/Cub Scout Robotics badge. It is fun and educational.

Is your child in FIRST Lego League (FLL)? Awesome! Our instructors and camp graduates have won international FLL championships. You've come to the right place. In fact, the coach is available to help other FLL teams. Please see the registration page for details.

Each one is uniquely fun and educational, but see if one of them stands out to you (otherwise, just choose based on schedule)

Lego Robotics InventionLAB and 3D Printing Camp

Learning Focus: Robot Building, Rapid Prototyping, Idea Generation, Testing, 3D Printing
Overview: Bring your ideas to life! We teach 'rapid prototyping', a technique that involves quickly building prototypes of invention ideas using cardboard, Legos or 3D printers. Kids design and build custom inventions with the help of their and then present their prototypes to a Shark Tank panel (like on the TV show!) Kids enjoy presenting killer pitches to the judges with the help of their new friends and reaping the rewards (we give the students a lot of tips and talk them through their pitches in advance to make sure they're successful). Our instructors have won international invention competitions, so your kids are learning from the best.

5 Afternoons (1:30p-4:30p): $249

Lego BattleBot Building/Programming Camp

Learning Focus: Robot Programming
Overview: This camp features our famous BattleBot championship, where student-made robots "battle to the death". With the help of world champion instructors, students will learn to program BattleBots in the Mindstorms EV3 language using sensors and logic. Beginners (and younger students) will master basic programming, while experienced programmers (and older students) will learn more advanced techniques for ensuring the success of their BattleBots. Bring your camera to the award ceremony to capture the moment of your child winning a medal for individual hands-on accomplishments at the camp.
