MENUMENU

                                                             Camp Francis

The Camp Francis summer program is meant to support the mission of the Catholic Community of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Community Life ministries within our parish community.  We promise to inspire growth opportunities, offer support, encourage participation, and safeguard the environment as we build our summer family.  We enable our community to renew the spirit within, maintain the physical body, and grow the mind as we enjoy the quality recreational, educational and spiritual activities within our exceptional facilities and grounds. We welcome with joy all those young people who come to us and invite them into the life of our summer community. 

With Peace and Love,

Ultrasonic Maze-Solving Robot

Instructor: Techsplorers, LLC (http://www.techsplorers.com/)
Min/Max Enrollment: 8/24
Price: $205

Imagine building an autonomous vehicle that uses sound waves to avoid collisions and find its way out of a maze all by itself! Learn how sound can be used to measure distance, add ultrasonic sensors to the robot, and program it to detect and avoid obstacles in its path. But avoiding obstacles is just the first step — the real challenge is figuring out how to navigate and solve a maze! And with Arduino, unlike the basic drag-anddrop programming taught in other robotics camps, students will learn a real programming language used in industry by real engineers. No programming or Arduino experience is necessary.

Note: Laptops will be available to borrow during class, however, Techsplorers encourages students to bring their own laptop from home with the free Arduino software already installed (see www.techsplorers.com/arduino for setup instructions). Robot built during class sold separately.
