2017 Summer STEM Institute
Posted Monday, May 1, 2017
It is time to sign up for the 2017 Summer STEM Institute. This Loveland Summer STEM Institute provides an opportunity for students to pursue their interest in robotics. In an inquiry based environment, students will build and program a VEX Clawbot; students will use their Clawbot to execute a series of challenges.
Introduction to Robotics (June 12 - June 22; Monday - Thursday, 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.)
• Location: Loveland Middle School
• Cost: $150
This session is an introduction to the programming and construction of a VEX robot. Throughout this two-week session, students will construct their robot from scratch and program the robots cortex using RobotC programming language. The challenges presented will require problem solving and critical thinking as each task will require specific functions of the robot. The session is open to students entering sixth to eighth grades who did not take Robotics during the 2016-17 school year.
Competition Camp (June 26 - June 30; Monday - Friday, 8 a.m. to 12 p.m.)
This session is geared toward students who have the foundations of VEX programming and construction. Over the course of the week, students will design and program a VEX robot to effectively perform in the VEX Competition Course. This one-week session is an opportunity for students to implement their knowledge of robotics in problem based exploration. Critical thinking, problem solving, and troubleshooting will be an emphasis of this session. This session is open to students entering seventh to ninth grades. Students must have participated in the 2016 Summer STEM Institute, taken Robotics at Loveland Middle School, or have a recommendation from Mrs. James. Students interested in participating on the middle school or high school Robotics Teams are encouraged to attend this session.
Please note: Students may participate in both sessions.
