Robots-4-U Summer Camp Review #STEM #Robots4U #BattleBots

Disclosure - free sample provided.

We live in Vegas, and it is so hot for a ton of outdoor activities here.  I am always looking for fun activities to keep my kids cool, and out of the Vegas heat.  I was introduced to Robots-4-U Summer Camp a few months back.  I was so excited to find out that they offer this camp in the Vegas area.  Don't worry if you are not in Vegas.  They offer Robots-4-U camp in a variety of cities across the US.  They offer camps in Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Minnesota, Oklahoma, Texas, Utah, and Nevada.  They offer half day and full day options.  This is a great way for your child to have some amazing Summer fun!

What exactly is Robots-4-U Summer Camp?  This is a STEM based camp that is designed for children 7-17.  The camp focuses on Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics.  The camp is appropriate for children that are just starting out building robots.  However, it is also great for the more advanced builder.  The camp allows each child to work at their own skill level.  This makes it great because it eliminates frustration, and focuses on the child having fun.  This program really helps children build useful skills.

I love that my 8 and 10 year old are having fun, but learning while they are playing.  My 8 and 10 year old are having a blast at camp this week.  They are learning with hands on play.  The camp uses robotics kits.  Yesterday, they got to build a cart.  They loved this.  They even got to battle their bots when they were done.  Today, they were so excited to tell me about the hovercraft that they built, and then battled.  They are so excited to go back the rest of this week, and see what else they get to build.  I really like that they are learning to use their thinking skills to read the instructions on how to build different robots.  They are also using their fine motor skills to put these robots together.  They truly are having a wonderful time.  They are enjoying making new friends at camp too.  They love the instructors.  They are really amazing.  They said they provide them with assistance when needed, they are patient, and nice too!  My kids have told me that they already want to go back next year.

This really is a great camp, and I suggest you check out the Robots-4-U website to learn more about what they have to offer.  You can see if there are any camps available in your area to sign up for, or even consider this for next year as a fun Summer activity.  They also offer robotics kits on their website.  This is another way to enjoy learning about robotics at home.  

You can learn more about Robots-4-U by visiting their website.  You can also connect with them on Facebook and Twitter.
