UTG and Elevate have partnered up for another year to offer a robotics/ultimate frisbee camp!
Campers will spend half their day
building and programming a robot and the other half
outside learning and playing ultimate frisbee.
Ultimate Camp will focus on teaching athletes the FUNdamentals of Ultimate Frisbee including throwing, catching, and cutting, all through our small-sided games. No previous experience of Ultimate is necessary to enjoy the program.
Elevate will be conducting fun and socially-distanced ultimate frisbee camps for kids aged 7 - 14, of all levels. Loved and trusted by 1000+ parents and their kids, their programs will focus on values rather than perfection. With their high energy coaches and quality programs, your athletes are guaranteed to have fun, in a safe way!
During robotics, students will learn fundamental engineering skills to construct the best VEX IQ robot they can build. Throughout the week the robots will have to be tailored to specific challenges, including the ever popular “robot soccer”. Robotics also introduces coding. Students use block coding to program their robot to drive and complete tasks all on its own. By the end of the week your child will be able to:
- write code that commands their motors to perform specific functions
- use the engineering design process to identify flaws and make improvements in their design
- implement fundamental concepts in physics such as gearing, centre of gravity, friction, leverage
- collaborate with team members
