Robotics and Robotics-Math Camps

Barobo's Afterschool and Summer Robotics Camps and Robotics-Math Camps 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.

 

The Robotics Camps emphasize hands-on learning of computer programming and robotics. Participants build robotic machines and learn coding, engineering, science, art, and music via robotics. Teamwork and communication skills are also emphasized.

 

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

  1. Robotics Camp: Grades TK-K

  2. Robotics Camp: Grades 1-2

  3. Robotics Camp: Grades 3-5

  4. Robotics Camp: Grades 6-8

  5. Robotics Camp: Grades 9-12

 

The Robotics-Math Camps empower K-12 students for accelerated and deeper learning of math and CS 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-Math 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-Math Camp curricula engage students in hands-on learning of math, seamlessly integrated with coding, engineering, science, art, and music via robotics. The curriculum includes both pre and post tests in each unit to assess student math skills and the academic progress from the beginning to the end of each unit. 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 on the math topics covered):

  1. Robotics-Math Camp: Grades TK-K

  2. Robotics-Math Camp: Grades 1-2

  3. Robotics-Math Camp: Grades 3-5

  4. Robotics-Math Camp: Grades 6-8

  5. Robotics-Math Camp: Grades 9-12

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

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.
