Intro To LEGO Robotics for adults


with Tom Bickford

Calendar Feb 4, 2023 at 9 am

This workshop is designed to teach adults how to build and program with Lego® EV3 Mindstorms robot kits. We focus on using the skills learned from these workshops to teach robotics at schools and robot teams. It is also great for anyone interested in learning something about robots, programming, or computers! We will be using the LEGO EV3 robot controller, but the latest version of LEGO MindStorms Home edition, which is a SCRATCH-based programming language and the only one currently supported by LEGO.

Note, if you currently have SPIKE robot kits, you are welcome to bring your own to use.

When: Saturday, February 4, 2023 (snow date January 5)
Time: 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Location: 233 John Mitchell Center, USM, Gorham Campus

Parking is directly across the street, no permit is required on weekends.

Presenter: Tom Bickford, Director of STEM Outreach (Maine Robotics) at the University of Southern Maine. Tom has been teaching Robotics and LEGO Robotics for 22 years.

Light snacks will be provided. Bring your own lunch.

LEGO Robotics - Feb at Baxter Academy


with Billy Wall

Calendar Feb 21, 2023 at 9 am, runs for 1 week

4-day February Vacation Camp

This camp is for any level of LEGO Roboteer! So if you are a rookie or a veteran this camp can take you and help move your skills forward. We start off with some basics since even the veterans have often forgotten a lot since last year, and of course some beginners are more advanced. Our camp staff try as quickly as possible to figure out which you are. Usually one staff member will be working primarily with the beginners and one primarily with the advanced, with the third floating as needed.

Open to ages 9 to 12, no experience needed.
