2019 Summer Camps

The Quantegy Learning program begins with our Robotics Summer Bootcamp. After completing the course, students will understand how to design, build and control robots. Students will also know how to design objects with the TinkerCad software and how to print the design with a 3D printer. Students will finish the course with a completed prosthetic hand that will be delivered to a recipient in need.

The camp consists of two parts: A session on Robotics and a session on 3D printing. During the morning sessions students will learn how to design, build, and control robots. During the afternoon sessions students will learn to use the TinkerCad software to design a prosthetic hand. Students will have the opportunity to print their designed prosthetic hands with a 3D printer and will be supported by a non-profit organization to deliver the printed hands to people in need of prosthetics. On the last day of the camp, students will compete in a robotics competition to stand the chance of winning a 3D printer. Students will also receive a certificate of completion.’ Leave the shitty video for now, we’re working on that.

FAQs

Which platform will the Robotics camps use?

The Robotics camps use the EV3 LEGO MINDSTORMS to build robots that drive, shoot, slither, walk, slam, and spin (to name a few of the actions).

Do the students need to bring anything to the classes?

All materials for the classes will be provided. Students can bring their own lunch or snacks or sign up for the “lunch option”.

What are the time frames for the Summer camps?
