Lipscomb/Nissan Bison Bot Summer Camp: WeeBots is in the past.
Lipscomb University and Nissan Engineering and Robotics Camps
For every kid who just can’t resist dismantling the toaster, the Lipscomb University/Nissan BisonBot Robotic Summer Camps will be the highlight of their summer. All camps will be held in the new Hughes Center engineering facility on the Lipscomb campus.
Applications are due by February 28, 2017. Those who have been selected will be notified by April 15, 2017.
Designed for very young campers with no robotics experience
Ages: 6-8 (completed Kindergarten)
Cost: $200 (snacks included)
Dates: June 19 - 21, 2017
Time: 9:00 am – 1:00 pm
This three-day camp introduces campers age 6-8 to introductory concepts in mechanics, electricity, and robotics through hands-on activities. The camp is designed to show campers the connections between basic science and the modern world of automation and to develop an awareness of the underlying engineering principles used in robotics. Camp culminates in a show-and-tell session for family and friends parents where campers discuss what they've learned and demonstrate activities they've been involved with.
Academic Scholarships and Financial Aid
Regardless of the selected camp, all applicants will be considered for academic scholarships. Camp applications must be accompanied by at least one letter of recommendation (non-relative) and a copy of the student’s most recently completed semester grades in math and science. Additionally, financial aid will be available to qualified students (to be considered for financial aid, additional materials are required—see the application for details). No before- or after-camp care will be available. Early application is strongly encouraged as acceptances are granted to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and camps fill quickly.
