CityCAMP Mindstorms EV3 course

Product for children aged 9-14.

CityCAMP Course is an unique course developed for young engineers who are keen to learn about technology and robots. During the course they will delve into the secrets of the most innovative technical solutions and will build robots’ models like: a harbour crane, a hoist and automatic dispatching device.

This course includes 12 carefully selected exercises, validated many times during RoboCAMP classes. Each lesson constructs a different model, inspired by the most interesting machines in the modern world. During the lesson children learn the basics of robotics and programming and enhance their knowledge of mechanics, physics and electronics.
