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.

This class is great for both programming beginners and Arduino enthusiasts and no previous Line-Following Robot 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.
