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.
The Ultimate Frisbee portion of camp will focus on teaching athletes the FUNdamentals of Ultimate Frisbee including throwing, catching, and cutting, all through engaging small-sided games. No previous experience of Ultimate is necessary to enjoy the program. Elevate is an award-winning program loved and trusted by 1000+ parents and their kids. Their programs have a daily value (teamwork, effort, friendship, positive self-talk, fun), and with their high energy coaches, 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
