KCC offering Summer Youth Robotics Camps in July

Students work on a robot during a camp at the RMTC.

Kellogg Community College is offering two Summer Youth Robotics Camps for youth going into sixth through ninth grades in July.

The camps will teach participants how to design and build robots using STEM skills and practices that will assist them as they grow and pursue their future career goals.

Intro to Tetrix Robotics
8 a.m.-noon Monday-Thursday, July 7-10

Students will take their robot engineering skills to the next level! They’ll learn how to design and manufacture robots using advanced engineering techniques, including the process of designing and manufacturing parts to build a robot using the Tetrix Building System (a system used by FIRST robotics middle school competition teams). Some experience with robotic design and engineering is recommended.

Lego Design and Engineering
12:30-4:30 p.m. Monday-Thursday, July 7-10

Students will learn the engineering concepts necessary to build advanced Lego designs, building solid structures that hold up to rigorous testing. Students will learn to create the Lego models they’ve always dreamed about and tried to create but didn’t have the technical skills to build to their satisfaction.

Camps will be held at KCC’s Regional Manufacturing Technology Cetner, 405 Hill Brady Road, Battle Creek. The fee for each camp is $125, due upon registration.

To register, call 269-965-4137 or email KCC’s Workforce Solutions Training Coordinator Kim Andrews-Bingham at andrewsk@kellogg.edu.

The Summer Youth Robotics Camps are just one part of a popular youth robotics initiative at KCC that includes Bruin Bots robotics team competitions each fall and offerings of engineering and robotics camps each spring and summer. Contact Kim via the info above for details on upcoming events.
