The RoboCamp summer robotics camp is a one-week day camp that will engage middle and high school students in team, project-oriented activities that utilize laptops and the SumoBot Robot (Produced by Parallax Inc. - www.parallax.com). Activities include creatively programming the robots to draw different shapes and imagery or performing music and dance routines, as well as Sumo competitions.
