At the end of the week, campers will have a chance to show off their robots in a friendly competition!

Over the course of a session, campers will learn how to use a small “indi Sphero” robot, which is controlled by colored tiles placed on the ground. Campers will work in pairs to complete game-like tasks with these robots, all while learning and having fun with peers. Over the course of the week, campers will also participate in fun science experiments, and create their own game for other campers to try to complete at the end of the week!

The camps will be held at one of the schools in Davis, with the specific campus to be announced in late March or early April. However, for families who would prefer to attend a virtual camp this year, On-Lime Week (July 10 – 14) will be held entirely on Zoom, following a similar format to prior years where we ran online camps.
