Mini-Camps for Creators, Builders and Thinkers
presented by Youth Enrichment League (YEL)
LEGO X: Varsity Builders Camp
Just right for LEGO builders ready for a challenge, even discriminating LEGO builders! Students will build a robotic DogBot, a motorized BugBot, a geared-up racer and a scary bat. They will then use these projects (and more) to investigate engineering concepts. We keep it fun too with open ended, creative projects.

EV3 Robotics 2017
Focus is to prepare youth for participation in the FIRST LEGO League’s Animal Allies challenge. Teams will design, build, program, test and modify multiple robots using the Mindstorms EV3 robotics system. They will then use their team’s robot to complete various challenges related to our animal friends, like delivering animals to safety, putting cows out to pasture, reuniting separated panda bears and more.

eXtreme MOBILE electroniX
Create a mobile juggernaut equipped with disc shooter, sirens, flashing lights and voice recorder. Make and take home your very own electric vehicle. You will build 20-30 projects over the course of the week and use those projects to explore basic aspects of electricity, including measuring ohms, amps, voltage, open and closed circuits and more.
Parents note: we will only use DC current (batteries); no AC current (electric outlets) will be used. Safety is our first rule.
