2017 Summer Robotics Program now Enrolling Students March 7, 2017

Posted by Sean Musselman in Uncategorized.


The Science Center is teaming up with the Burlington Public Schools Summer Program to host its first ever “FIRST Lego League Competition Bootcamp”. This is a BRAND NEW program unlike our previous summer robotics programs. The program will run from July 10, 2017 – July 20, 2017, (8 five-hour weekday sessions).

Students entering grades 4, 5, and 6 in the 2017/2018 school year are encouraged to join in this challenging, multi-disciplinary program where students will participate in a mock version of the 2016 FIRST Lego League competition, “Animal Allies” and work in teams to construct and program LEGO robots that navigate obstacles and complete challenges.

Students will also explore how humans and animals currently depend on and impact one another and imagine how robots could play a role in improving this relationship in the future. This summer program is an excellent primer for students who might be interested in participating in FIRST Lego League teams, including the Marshall Simonds Middle School “Devilbotz” in the future.

Burlington is offering its students the opportunity to attend a two-week session (Monday through Thursday). Tuition is $250.

Time: 8:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m.

Place: Memorial Elementary School

Transportation: Arranged by parents

To enroll your child, fill out and return the tear-off on this registration form by April 21, 2017 with a non-refundable deposit of $25.00 (the deposit is applied to tuition). Also include the health and release form linked here. The tuition balance is due by June 19, 2017. Space is limited – please register as soon as possible.
