Digital Media Academy’s Adventures in Robotics & Programming with LEGO® EV3 camp at Stanford University was recently featured in a story by the Associated Press.
AP stopped by DMA’s Stanford University location to talk to campers and staffers about the new LEGO® Mindstorm EV-3 robot and how Silicon Valley has always had a love for LEGO® robots. AP interviewed several campers about what they liked about the robotics camp. As one camper put it, “You feel like an engineer with all the programming and building.”
Building a Future
The Stanford robotics camp is a unique mix of kids. Some kids already know they want to be robot engineers, while others are just looking for fun and inspiration. DMA’s robotics camp challenges both of these groups of campers with problem solving and building.
Working alone and in teams, kids build, program and then complete challenges with their robots. Digital Media Academy is proud to offer such a unique program to kids in association with LEGO®.
The New LEGO® Robot: EV3
DMA had three of the new EV3 kits on hand to give kids a first look at the amazing robots. With more than 600 awesome pieces, the new LEGO® Mindstorms EV3 takes robotics to the next level. Built on the existing LEGO® Mindstorms platform, the new LEGO® EV3 kit offers the same great ways to build along with some incredible new options. DMA has been using the new EV3 kits for robotics camps during Summer 2014.
