SMIST Programs

Duanesburg YMCA

NASA is in the market for a new planetary rover to explore a recently discovered planet. Before the robot is deployed, it must be fully tested to make sure it works correctly. Students will construct and test a robot that is capable of following commands to explore the planet?s surface. This two-day program will introduce students to the world of robotics by using the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 kit. Students will build a basic robot and through a series of activities learn to enhance its capabilities by adding sensors and motors. Students will also use graphical programming language to have the robot move and perform other actions. Parents are welcome to watch the students and their robots complete the final challenge at the end of the second day.

*Discounted Day Camp options available M-W 7am-6pm August 19th-22nd with Registration to Intro to Robotics.
