2018 World Robotic Olympiad Summer Camps Offered

The NASA IV&V Educator Resource Center, NASA WV Space Grant Consortium, and Mountaineer Area RoboticS (MARS) 2614 are teaming up to deliver six weeks of robotics summer camps across the state of West Virginia. This will be our largest ever, and will be a team-based program centered around learning to build, document, and program the LEGO EV3 robot and compete in the World Robot Olympiad (WRO).

Teams of 2-3 students can register together. Individual students (or pairs if necessary) will be combined into teams at the camp. The intent is for existing or rookie FIRST LEGO League (FLL) teams to break themselves into smaller groups so they can develop their technical and teamwork skills while competing in a new tournament series. We strongly suggest teams bring their own EV3 Robot and means of programming (laptop or tablet).

Cost is $125 per student and includes 3 full days of camp (Tues-Thurs.; 9am-5pm), snacks and lunch each day, WRO team registration, and a Friday tournament (9am-3pm) with awards.  There are several dates/locations to choose from.  Locally, the camp will be held June 12-15th at James Rumsey.

This year, there will be two age categories:

• Elementary: 9-12 years old (at the time of camp).

• Junior: 13-15 (at the time of camp).

Use this form (https://goo.gl/forms/mHLm5rhERemsop3H3) to register your student or team for the 2018 WV WRO Summer Camp Program. If your student is attending camp by themselves, they will be grouped with other individual or pairs of students because this is a team-based program. Coaches/parents are required to attend the camp meeting on Monday night at 6 pm, but are not required to attend the camp or the tournament Tues-Friday.
