Manhattan College Introduces Robotics and Aeronautics Camp for Children

Campers will problem solve with LEGO® equipment and drones.

Manhattan College is offering a robotics camp for children between the ages of 8 and 12, in collaboration with Tekintellect Inc.

There will be two sessions of the one-week program, which takes place on the Manhattan College campus. The first session will take place from Monday, July 22 to Friday, July 26 and the second session will take place from July 29 to August 2. Each day will begin at 9:30 a.m. and end at 4:30 p.m.

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


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.

Participants can register early until Sunday, June 30 for a $750 fee for the one-week program. Pricing after July 1 is $900 for the one-week program. Participants must submit a nonrefundable $50 application fee upon registering. Discounts for Manhattan College employees and for multiple siblings are available. A complete schedule and more information can be found on the Manhattan College website.
