STEM Robotics and Aeronautics Camp

In collaboration with Tekintellect Inc

Our one-week camp offers an engaging, hands-on introduction to various robotics and aeronautics concepts while having FUN.

Participants apply problem solving techniques and enhance their learning abilities through LEGO® WeDo, LEGO® Technic and Drone flying aeronautics.

The camp takes place at our Manhattan College campus in Riverdale, New York. The one-week program runs from 9:30 am to 4:30 pm from Monday to Friday and serves children between the ages of 8 and 12 years old.

LEGO® WeDo

Participants use cognitive-based thinking to assemble their robot and code it. Students are able to formulate ideas that make the robot run various possible action scenarios by working together using problem-solving techniques.

LEGO® Technic

This LEGO® set helps develop and encourage mechanic ability, technical aptitude, and versatility. Through these blocks, participants build detailed detailed vehicles using their imagination and design skills. The vehicles move successfully as a result of design and strategy building. Students will be able to work individually and as a group.

Drone Flying Aeronautics

Through the use of drones, participants will understand the basics of aeronautics. In teams, students learn and have fun, while understanding aerodynamics, friction and similar concepts.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    What does a regular day look like?

    Campers start the day with icebreaker activities. Campers will build a robot using LEGO® block sets and code it to make it move during the morning. In the afternoon campers work in teams to make drones fly and perform actions. To end the day, campers will build a zipline toy transporter to move an object from one place to another.

    How much does the camp cost?

    The camp costs $900 for the week. Make sure you take advantage of our early bird special and sibling discounts.
