Programming SPIKE Prime Robot

Rising Grades 5 – 8

Hosted by Engineering Outreach and Recruitment

Campers will explore the possibilities of the new LEGO Spike Prime. From building grabber arms and a programmable safe to autonomous robots that can navigate around your room, every day offers an exciting adventure. Campers will also learn the fundamentals of block-based programming used to control the Spike Prime. Algorithms, loops, events, conditional statements, and using variables are just some of the many programming elements that are incorporated in this versatile camp.

This is a two-week camp. The registration fee includes a specialty LEGO set with over 500 pieces and other materials required for the camp. You will also be loaned a SPIKE Prime robotics set for the duration of the camp. Please note: once the kit has been mailed to you, there will be no refunds if you cancel. Please use the pre-paid return label (included in kit) to return the loaner robot within 4 days of the conclusion of the camp. If not returned, you will be charged for the cost to replace it.

Discount option is available if you use your own SPIKE Prime robot and do not need a loaner robot ($30 value).

Campers must download the LEGO Education SPIKE Prime App to an iPAD, Kindle, or laptop. These are not included with the loaner robot. Campers should download and verify they have a compatible device prior to registering. Download software
