Explore, Create, and Have Fun
After School or in the Summer!
Every child is different, and every child learns in a different way. Here at Robotic Explorers, our mission is to teach by allowing students to experiment, make mistakes and discover opportunities. Students ages 4 to 17 get hands on experience with robotics, programming, architecture, technology and team building. Our beginners start practicing various building techniques with traditional LEGO, as our advanced participants create functional robots and are selected to compete in regional robotics competitions.
With our after school, summer camp and competition programs we encourage young minds to explore the world of science with forward thinking and constructive problem solving. Located in Roswell, Georgia, our 5,000 sq. ft. engineering lab is where you will find these students being challenged, developed and motivated while having fun in an educational environment.
FUN, Hands on learning after school
Explore. Discover. Create.
Engineering Exploration Lab
Creativity is key in the lab where ages 4 – 13 hone their design, building and computer programming skills. LEGO Master Builder, LEGO WeDo, LEGO Mindstorms and LEGO in Motion programs are offered throughout the school year. All engineering exploration labs feature orignal Robotic Explorers designs.
Robotic Explorers In-School Program
Let’s get those models moving! Young builders use gears, pulleys, wheels an axles to animate models and make connections with real-world machines. Our afterschool STEM enrichment program gives students the building blocks to design machines of their own.
Bring Robotic Explorers to your school
Robotic Explorers participates in United States Foundation for Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology, (FIRST) programs. FIRST provides an opportunity for students 6 through 17 to explore and conquer real-world challenges through its Jr. FLL, FLL, FTC, and FRC programs. At Robotic Explorers, these team experiences provide a testing ground for the design, building, programming, strategy and entrepreneurial skills practiced in our training programs.
This hands-on program is designed to capture young children’s inherent curiosity and direct it towards discovering the possibilities of improving the world around them. Robotic Explorers team members receive simple machines and mechanisms training using traditional LEGO and LEGO WeDo robotics. Team experiences are offered in the fall and spring.
FLL features an autonomous robot challenge, real-world research project and team activities guided by FLL Core Values. Robotic Explorers team members develop their building and programming skills through hands-on lessons and design challenges in the Practicum lab. The practicum program combines physics, mechanics, system design and computer programming.
FTC and FRC
FTC and FRC are about teaching students the value of hard work, innovation and creativity. Team members have the opportunity to build robots, learn computer programming and Computer-Aided Design and compete against other teams at the local, regional and national level! Professional Mentors and corporate sponsors support the team in accomplishing its competition and outreach goals each season.
Atlanta's Powered-Up Camp
Robots, Challenging and FUN
Machines Camp – Ages 6 to 8
Campers will use LEGO building elements to complete the building projects featured each camp week. LEGO WeDo robotics projects feature original Robotic Explorers designs. Campers work independently and at their own pace so that beginner and experienced builders can have a fun camp experience while building skills.
- Mindstorms Camp – Ages 9 – 12
Campers will build and modify and LEGO Mindstorms robotic vehicle that can perform the mission tasks for each week challenge. Campers work independently and at their own pace so that beginner and experienced builders and programmers can have a fun camp experience while developing skill.
- Java Robotics – Ages 13 – 17
Camp activities will include working with multiple building systems to build robots programmed to run autonomously and joystick-controlled using the Java programming language. Students will work individually and in teams to apply their design and programming ideas. Metal robots will be used in the multi-robot challenge that culminates each week of camp.
