Barobo's Afterschool and Summer Robotics Camps for Accelerated Math Learning are designed to be hosted by our school and district partners at their sites. The camps focus on the cognitive and socio-emotional aspects of learning, alleviate some of the distress caused by the pandemic, and bring fun back to learning. They empower K-12 students for accelerated and deeper math learning through robotics projects and the solution of real-world problems using math concepts, and at the same time provide students with recreational and teamwork opportunities with peer-mentoring. Each Robotics Camp is focused on learning key math concepts in the related grade levels through collaborative robotics projects (multiple students use different devices to control the same robotic system they create on their own to accomplish a task) and RoboPlay challenges. The Robotics Camp curricula engage students in hands-on learning of math, seamlessly integrated with coding, engineering, science, art, and music via robotics. The campers also learn teamwork, communication, presentation, and leadership skills.

The camps are offered in five grade bands (click on each title for more information):

  1. Robotics Camp A for Accelerated Math Learning (Grades TK-K)

  2. Robotics Camp B for Accelerated Math Learning (Grades 1-2)

  3. Robotics Camp C for Accelerated Math Learning (Grades 3-5)

  4. Robotics Camp D for Accelerated Math Learning (Grades 6-8)

  5. Robotics Camp E for Accelerated Math Learning (Grades 9-12)

Instructors come from school or district staff. Local college students may also be recruited. Professional development is provided for training instructors.

The Barobo Robotics Camps aim to:

  • Accelerate deeper learning in math

  • Instill confidence to learn math and pursue a STEM major in college

  • Nurture students’ creativity and imagination by creating and programming their own robotic systems

  • Enhance students’ teamwork and communication skills  through collaborative robotics projects

  • Gain presentation and leadership skills with group presentations at the end of the camp (for grades 6-8 and 9-12)

  • Build talent pipelines and inspire the next generation of professionals and leaders in STEM fields with Assistant Coaches for peer-mentoring

  • Prepare students to participate in math-focused level-playing-field RoboPlay competitions

Additional information:

  • Campers: TK-K, 1-2nd, 3-5th, 6-8th, and 9-12th grade students in the current academic year.

  • Number of Campers: Up to 30 students for each camp.

  • Curricula: Each camp consists of a 40-hour curriculum.

  • Duration: At the discretion of the camp organizer: 1-week (8 hours per day), 2-week (4 hours per day), 4-week (2 hours per week), or 8-week (1 hour per day).

  • Time and Location: Decided by camp organizer.

  • Instructors: K-12 teachers and para-educators within the district and county, and/or college students at local colleges and universities.

  • Training for Instructors: Regularly scheduled professional development sessions (four two-hour sessions) are available to prepare instructors to conduct the camp. If there is a large cohort of instructors from the same school district, a tailored PD can be arranged. No prior coding and robotics experience is needed.

  • Assistant Coaches: Middle and high school students may serve as assistant coaches. Each camp is encouraged to have two assistant coaches with prior Robotics Camp experience  for peer-mentoring.
