Camps

Up-A-Creek Robotics is offering Summer Camps for 2019.  These camps are designed and taught by our high-school team members and mentors.  The camps are an important source of fundraising for our team.


Cooperative Minecraft
 4th-12th grade
***Students must have their own Minecraft account***
On the surface, Minecraft seems like a simple game. The Minecraft world is large, open-ended and full of hostile creatures. You must mine stone, chop wood, build shelter, grow food, and build weapons to survive. But to move on to large and complex building projects, a community of Minecrafters must work together. As a group, students will design and plan a city. Students will establish rules and conventions, cooperate with each other, manage scarce resources and create divisions of labor. In this camp we will all play vanilla Minecraft on our own server. The world will be fresh, and as a group we will decide what to build. And most importantly - have some summer fun!
Kerbal Space Program
6th-12th grade
The Kerbal Space Program game is a creative and fun way for students to explore orbital physics. With help from the little green Kerbals, students create rockets and space planes of their own design and launch them from the space center’s launch pad or runway. Mission goals include achieving orbit, landing on the moon, landing on other planets, capturing asteroids and creating space stations.
 Intro to Java Programming
7th-12th grade
This session will teach Java to students who already have a basic understanding of programming (maybe just variables, functions, concepts of syntax from learning another programming language like Processing, Python or JavaScript as examples). This course will cover object-oriented design with Java, and go over usage of very basic data structures like arrays, queues and stacks. More advanced concepts may also be covered such as sorting or recursion. This course could serve as a preparatory class for those students who will be taking AP Computer Science in high school.
 Junior Robotics
K-4th grade
Join our high school students for some fun robot-themed tech activities. Come drive our competition robots, watch them shoot some balls, have a tour of our machine shop, try some programming, learn to solve problems and more! This specialty day camp features several different activities around STEM that kids will love!
Lego Mindstorms
4th-8th Grade
LEGO Mindstorm Robot systems are a wonderful way for students to gain experience in Computer Programming and the basics of mechanisms. You will learn to build a basic robot and program it for simple autonomous tasks. From there we will learn about motors, various sensors (light, touch, proximity) and how to integrate them into our robots.
Intro to the Lathe
9th - 12th Grade
Designed for beginners, this introductory class will expose students to the basics of machining and metal fabrication using the lathe, including facing, turning and drilling. Students must tie back long hair, wear short sleeves, long pants and wear closed toe shoes.
Intro to the Milling Machine
9th-12th Grade
In this class students will learn the safe operation and daily maintenance of the vertical knee milling machine. Students will do some manual machining and some simple programming, and will observe some CNC Machining in action. Students must tie back long hair, wear short sleeves, long pants and wear closed toe shoes.
Intro to Javascript
7th-12th Grade
The class is designed for beginning to intermediate programmers interested in web development. Students will learn the basics of the Javascript language and will use JS to create dynamic and exciting websites.
 Junior Engineering
K-4th grade
Join our high school students for some fun engineering-themed tech activities. Come learn about simple machines, build some structures and bridges, try some programming, learn to solve problems and more! This specialty day camp features several different activities around STEM that kids will love!
