Sample Projects:

1. Ball Shooter
This cool robot controls a pitching machine and batter with the touch of a button. Campers will get a chance to program their ball shooters with different speed and interval.

2. Bumper Car
This robot has a bumper in front that triggers a touch sensor to tell the robot when it has run into something. The program will make the robot drive around the room, turning each time it bumps into something. Start it anywhere, and see where it goes. Will it get stuck or keep going and going

3. Line Follower
Line follower is a robot that follows a line on the ground. It will use one light sensor to sense where the line is, and use this to control the motors to steer the car and stay on the line.

4. Checkout Scanner
This Checkout Scanner imitates the function of the kind of laser barcode scanner that you find at a store checkout. It will recognize and scan any of the five items on the right as they are passed over the sensor, because each item has a "bar code" on the bottom of it, made of alternating white and dark (or empty) beams.

5. Hand Generator Car & Top spinner
Campers will have a blast building two very cool robots: A cool car powered by a hand cranked generator and a handheld motor spins up a spinning top faster than you could spin it by hand!

6. Electric Guitar
Campers will build a state-of-the-art electric guitar uses the ultrasonic sensor to measure the distance to a plate that slides along the neck of the guitar, which determines which note or chord to play. Let’s rock and roll!

7. Path Measurer Robot
This super smart robot that can measure any path you challenge her to measure! At the end of the building session, campers will create different challenges to test how smart our Path Measurer Robots are!

8. Mini Rover with remote control
Campers will have so much fun building this super cool rover operated by a remote control. At the end of the camp session, we will have fun games and challenges that allow everyone to show their creativity

9. Pinball Machine
We will be making a full functioning pinball machine that is very intelligent! Score points by staying in the game as long as possible or by hitting the color sensor target. Who can design the pinball robot that can score the most point!?

10. Tripod Bot
The tripod is a three legged walking robot that you have to see to believe. It can walk in three directions but it is a little shy because when it sees you, it will quickly walk turn away.

11. Trailer Pull
Campers will build a tow vehicle and trailer to pull heavy loads. The trailer is designed to be very strong to be able to support very heavy loads, and the tow vehicle uses all three motors and low gearing to generate high pulling forces. Get ready for some fun loading, pulling, and unloading actions!

12. Alpha Rex
Alpha Rex performs tasks that only the most sophisticated robots can do... Walk on two legs like a real person! With built in rotation sensors on the two Servo Motors powering his legs, and an Ultrasonic Sensor enabling Alpha Rex to see, you can program Alpha Rex to go where you want with precision!

13. Robo- Gator
This Robo-Gator act just like alligator and only attacks if he has the nerve (which most alligators do). The humanoid senses color and tells you what color it is sensing. It also walks and feels using touch sensors.

14. Llama Bot
Llamas actually do spit—which you will learn first-hand of you scare or anger one of these animals in person. This robots spits balls with a Zamor shooter.

15. Forklift
Campers will build a forklift that can drive around, lift loads that are placed in the pallet bucket 7 inches straight up, set them gently down on top of shelves, and then take them back down.

16. Race Car
This Race Car is designed to look and steer like a real car, with pivoting front wheel steering. It is also designed for speed, with gears to increase the speed of the rear drive wheels. This robot race car uses the color sensor that is positioned under the car to do some basic autonomous operations by sensing the color of the surface. The sensor can distinguish six different colors, so you can make the car react to different colored tape lines, colored paper strips, etc.
