Robotics Programs

Robotics Camp

During the last week of our summer day camp, the Club gets invaded by robots! Campers get to build robots that they can drive as they try to complete different challenges. The camp uses the VEX IQ Robotics System, similar to LEGO, to teach youth the basic engineering concepts and introduce coding. Youth work in teams of 2 or 3 all week on building and modifying their robot for the challenge given to them. At the end of the week a competition/demonstration is held which parents are invited to. For further information contact Dominic at 203-235-8185. 

Check out the Robotics Camp video here.

To register please go to our Parent Portal.

Robotics Team

During the fall and winter months our Robotics Team, the Gigabots, build robots using the VEX IQ Robotics System to participate in competitons throughout the state. During the season youth will learn about basic engineering concepts such as gear ratio, center of gravity, stress, etc. They will also have to opportunity to learn beginning coding using RobotC, a version of the C programming language.

In the Winter months the team will compete in both driver skill and autonomous (coding) competitions as they try to qualify for the State Championship and the World Championship.

Youth that have not attended a Robtoics Camp or have not been part of the team before and wish to join the team now, please contact Dominic at 203-235-8185 for an interview.
