Our goal at URI Computer camp is to educate our campers in a hands-on environment with the foundational computer knowledge to create amazing websites, games, hardware, and apps, all while having fun and making friends.
Our camps include:
Lego Mindstorms (Robotics)
Campers will build and program Lego Mindstorms Robots to perform tasks like Mars Pickup and Sumo Wars Bot fights. Programming Robots to use sensors and motors to interact with the environment, and skills like problem solving, design, test and creativity will all come into play during this week-long camp.
Introduction to Programming
Campers will learn concepts of computer programming using introductory languages such as Scratch. We will also teach fundamental programming concepts like variables, loops and conditionals; as well as touch on other computer science topics such as internet safety and computing careers.
