Summer at Woodstock – Robotics

Learn to Build and Program Robots

We create a fun and engaging space where participants will explore, learn, and build robots themselves. Participants will learn how to program and implement the algorithms that control a robot with the purpose of solving real life problems. Projects will gradually present the participants with increasing complexity of mechanics, algorithms, and electronics systems, prompting them to look for solutions to real life problems in fields such as engineering. This course is for anyone looking to enhance their creativity and their understanding of where robotics and our future are headed!


Who should take this course?

Whether you’re new to robotics and programming, or are experienced in the field, this course has something to offer you and is tailored to meet your needs.


  • Work with LEGO EV3 Mindstorms kits
  • Tackle a new challenge each day
  • Understand algorithms
  • Learn the basics of programming


    • Bring your own ideas
    • Shape your own challenges
    • Receive personal guidance from experienced mentors
    • Learn about the latest developments in the field of robotics


Highlights and learning

One of the greatest long-term benefits of this course is the chance to develop deep collaborative skills alongside technical skills – the kind of team work that every employer wants to see! The course culminates in an ultimate “Battle of the Bots” that gives participants the opportunity to showcase their accomplishments.
