Team Dave held its inaugural Lego Robotics Camp during the week of July 28 – August 1, 2014.
38 children between the ages of 5 and 12 were split into 3 groups: Lego Builders for the little ones, Lego We Do for Grade 1-3 and Lego NXT for the older group.
During the camp all 3 groups built robots and some programmed them to perform tasks and missions.
The children were also introduced to some safe science experiments by the 14 leaders, who all call Team Dave from St. David CSS in Waterloo, their home.
During the week, 1 Lego Builder and 2 Lego We Do members graduated into the next levels, which was a tribute to our successful Lego Robotics Camp.
Beside the serious building and programming, the campers also did some crafts which were usually all related somehow to robotics. For instance, they built robots out of cardboard and made bristle-bots out of toothbrushes.
At the end of the week, children were able to showcase their new acquired skills to their parents, family and friends. The highlight for Team Dave was the ability to show their 2014 FRC robot and inspire the future young engineers to join the FIRST programs in our region.
