Columbia State Community College will host a youth robotics camp for rising 6th – 8th grade students at the Lewisburg Campus.

The primary goal of the camp is to promote excitement for science, technology, engineering and math. Students will learn concepts of programming, engineering practices, and teamwork. LEGO Mindstorms EV3 Education Kits and program development environment will be used for hands-on building and programming activities.

Participants will build several robots during the camp, modifying and programming one for a BattleBot competition. The first four days will be allocated to learning basic LEGO robot build techniques and programming commands for movement, turning, sensing, decision-making along with combining the commands into sequences for solving problems. For the fifth day, participants will run a robot of their own design and build in the competition. Parents are encouraged to attend the competition on the final day.

The cost to attend is $150. The camp will take place at 980 Ellington Parkway in Lewisburg. The schedule is Monday June 13 - June 17 from 8:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. on Monday – Thursday and Friday 8:30 a.m. – 12 p.m.
