Dinosaurs & Robots: Sign Up for a full day or ½ day of camp.  Dinosaurs or robots?  Which is your favorite?  Join us for this dinos and robots only battle to see which one wins out!  Campers will start with robots to communicate in code, learn about circuits, and electricity then design their own ultimate working robot to take home.  Next, we’ll look back to the mighty Mesozoic era and the dinosaurs who ruled the earth. Go back in time to inspect real fossils and find out how dinos got their name. Full Day Campers will also design toothbrush robots that can zoom around a track, excavate “old” bones, and build a prehistoric dino diorama.
