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)
