Join our Kids Virtual Camps: Robotics

Reserve your child’s spot in our leading-edge virtual camps

At MakerKids we provide ongoing virtual camps that students can join from the comfort of home, at a time that works for you.

Are you looking for the perfect activity for your son or daughter?

Our live online STEM camps will quickly have them creating fun projects within a group of their peers at whatever level they are currently at. Our live instructors make sure that they get the help they need at exactly the right time.

Interested in online kids’ STEM camps and learning? Your child will learn the foundations of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics), while building key social and change-making skills. Kids will create their own inventions in our daily camps. Camps are 2 hour sessions once a day (5 days a week). Sign up for the daily timeslot of your choice and pay on a weekly basis.

Timeslots for our online STEM camps are limited, so register ASAP to avoid disappointment.

Live Instructors

Our online environment lets your child interact with the instructor much as they would in person. Video conferencing and screen-sharing capabilities allow teachers to work with participants in a group as well as individually.

Individualized Approach

We recognize that each maker learns best at their own pace. Maker-Mentors offer individual support and help with project design and debugging to each maker individually. The video conferencing technology we use allows instructors to view each maker’s work as needed.

Small Group Sizes

Groups have a maximum of 8 students per teacher.

Whether you call it digital, virtual, remote, online, learn from home, or videoconference – participants will learn together in small groups from live teachers!

Robotics Camps

Grades 3-5 and 6-8

Kids make electronic creations that they previously could have only dreamed of. Make lights light up and code a ‘robot brain’ to make something awesome. Kids get to see the results of their code right before their eyes. They realize that they can make things that others can use. Kids exercise creativity by developing project ideas, learn to design projects for specific user needs, and give and receive feedback on their designs

Skills Learned: Self-Confidence, Creativity, Teamwork, Coding, Electronics, Math, Reading, Writing, Design

Robotics Camps for Kids

Arduino TinkerCAD Robotics Camps

The Arduino is an open source industry standard prototyping board. It is a low level controller where electricity is directly controlled and circuits containing desired components (e.g. lights, buttons, buzzers) must be wired before being used.  Many activities take the form of device operating theory, wiring instructions, and finally programming usage.

Camp Badge Levels:

Arduino TinkerCAD Beginner

The beginner section focuses on LEDs and buzzers as outputs stressing the importance of visualizing the actual flow of electricity that results from the Arduino following our instructions.  Basic circuitry and programming concepts are also covered to give students a good foundation for more complex components and coding structures later on.

 

Arduino TinkerCAD Intermediate

After covering conditional statements and a few other slightly more abstract coding tools like variables, the intermediate section moves through component after component teaching kids what they do, how they work, and then presenting projects that they can utilize them in.  This includes things like potentiometers, ultrasonic sensors, light sensors, motors, and more. One of the most important “devices” covered early on is the serial monitor which allows the Arduino to communicate with the computer over USB and can be very important for debugging and calibration.

 

Arduino TinkerCAD Advanced

Taking the many components kids have now become familiar with, the focus of the advanced section is on the code that is controlling them.  More advanced structures like iterating while loops and techniques needed to handle interrupts with low level code culminates in custom subroutines that unlocks a vast number of projects that can support a greatly increased scope.

 

Arduino TinkerCAD Experts

For students not yet interested in text based programming, the expert level Arduino curriculum has lots of tricky but rewarding projects they can tackle still using block based TinkerCAD.

MakerKids was a great experience for my kids this summer. One of my sons did 4 different weeks and each was a different program. Jacob loved Makerkids and learned a great deal about electronics and computer programming. These programs are the way if the future. Jacob has expressed interest in working at Makerkids one day. It really was a very positive experience for him as well as our younger son who joined him for one of the weeks. I recommend MakerKids to anyone whose kids want to try something different, it is just great!

Technical Requirements

Basic Requirements:

  • A internet connection
  • Working Microphone and Speakers – We recommend a set of headphones or headset (which has been tested and is working) with an integrated microphone so that you can hear us and we can hear you as clearly as possible. If you do not have headphones or a headset, please ensure your child is in a quiet place – as long as they have speakers and a microphone and are in a quiet place it will be fine. Please reduce background noise or move to a quiet area for the benefit of all kids in the class. 
  • Optional: Webcam – Either external or built-in (many laptops have an integrated camera).
  • Laptop or desktop (not tablet or phone)
  • Keyboard and mouse
  • Chrome browser

Detailed System Requirements:

  • Broadband internet connection (ideally with at least 1.2Mbps download and 600Kbps upload speeds)
  • For Coding Classes: 4GB of RAM or more (<4GB RAM may work but may be unstable in some situations)
  • For Minecraft and Idea Incubator classes ONLY
    • Minecraft system requirements (source
      • Minecraft: PC (Windows 7 or later) or Mac (OSX 10.7 or later) computer (not a Chromebook)
        • CPU: Intel Core i3-3210 3.2 GHz / AMD A8-7600 APU 3.1 GHz or equivalent (older or less powerful CPUs may work but may be unstable in some situations)
        • RAM: 4GB or more (<4GB RAM may work but may be unstable in some situations)
    • Minecraft Java Edition Launcher Installed 
        • A Minecraft Java Edition Account Purchased
