Georgetown College is hosting RoboGames 2012 in June, a theme playing off the London Olympics. The middle school camp dates are June 18-22 while elementary school camp (4th-5th grade) is June 25-29. All sessions are on campus from 9-11:30 a.m. Campers will build and program their own robo-athletes and compete in their own RoboGames, ending with an all-in “Sumo-bot” competition to see whose robo-athlete is the ‘Last Robot Standing.’ Dr. Andrea Peach, Associate Professor of Education, conducts the robot camps and will provide more information by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

Then from July 10-12, 2012, there will be a Summer Robotics camp for 5th-8th grade students at Ed Davis Learning Center, 151 Ed Davis Lane, Georgetown. Also under the direction of Dr. Peach, campers will create and program robots to complete real-world tasks using the Lego NXT robots and then enter their completed project in an All-in Robo Games Tournament. More information and applications are available at the Ed Davis Learning Center. Contact Mr. Ednal Maynard, Director, at 502-867-5846.
