OUR HOLIDAY CAMPS
Little Scientists organizes camps during the school holidays in Uster and Zurich.
Our camps are the perfect balance between learning and playing. Campers will spend the day learning about robotics and programming but also playing exciting games and having fun with their camp mates.
Each day the campers will build new robots, such as dinosaurs, cars, flying machines and humanoids and then give life to them using the programs they create themselves using the WeDo or the new Spike Prime LEGO Sets. They will learn how to build robots with a walking mechanism, convert rotational motion into translational motion, increase force with levers, gears and belt drives and work with motion and tilt sensors.
Campers will also learn coding using ScratchJr, a programming language developed for younger children which teaches the principles of programming by moving colourful instruction blocks to make characters jump, sing, play and talk or, Scratch 3.0 which teaches the concepts of loops and variables to create simple games and animate stories in a fun and enjoyable way.
Additional challenges will be set to suit camper’s abilities
Campers learn problem solving, teamwork and creativity all while having fun.
Camp themes are different from weekly clubs and workshops
