Get your fundamentals right with this beginner robotics camp. Learn about circuits, switches and motors. Learn how to create your own end-effector mechanisms. Starting from scratch, build a robot that can play football, basketball, tennis, and run a relay race. Hold an Olympics parade and watch your robots perform!
This camp is for 9 to 14 year old children. Beyond that, there are no prerequisites! Come with an open mind, leave with some great learning and an experience of a lifetime!
Robotics is something everyone wants to do nowadays, and why not? The idea of a walking and talking machine that can do your work for you is awesome. However, learning robotics is no fun and of no use without actually understanding every single component and concept that makes a robot. This camp takes you back the very basics of what makes a robot: building its body, building its circuitry, modifying it for specific use and understanding how it all fundamentally works.
Basic dynamics of making a robot
Manual robotics: Components & their working principles
Manual robotics: Building Rovers, basic circuitry
Operation using DPDT switches Engineering: Concepts related to relative motion between robot
Components Engineering: conceptualizing and building drive mechanisms based on application
Critical Thinking: Can I make the correct judgements that put together the different strengths of my team to conceptualise a 3D model, create a 3D representation on a software, and print it out using the capabilities of the 3D printer given to me?
Creativity: How can I use mechanical and electrical parts in order to design and build a robot that can move in the way I want it to?
Problem Solving: Am I being able to troubleshoot and solve all the problems that arise while I am making my robot?
Communication: Nothing gets done without discussion and negotiation with my team
Collaboration: It takes great team work to envision, design and build a robot that can play sports

The idea of making and learning is excellent. It ensures that the children understand better and also retain what they learn. The pairing of children is also good as it teaches them sharing and cooperation early in life. All in all an excellent programme. Kudos to Leo and Mike. Wishing you all the success in your future endeavors.
We live in an age where parents and kids are bombarded with online courses and 'smart learning' apps that help kids to only perform better in competitive exams. Leo and Mike in my opinion are starting a much needed trend of developing curiosity, critical thinking and problem solving ability in kids (the skills that really matter post education) from a very young age. I wish them all the best, hopefully they will help us create a new generation of kids - for a better future! Looking forward, good luck guys!
It was an amazing experience for me. I’m very happy and surprised by this type of learning and at the same time the kids are enjoying the presentation. Thank you for this.
I saw the effort my daughter and her team put into creating their final output, and it was great to see them so completely engaged and challenged by their project. Very impressed with Leo&Mike team’s attention to details in the program curriculum. My daughter is your fan for life.
I feel like what Leo&Mike is offering whether its design thinking or whether its stop motion movie making (which is what my daughter has attended) the idea is the thought process, the framework of thinking that they are building in kids and I think that's what future readiness is about. I greatly recommend them.
I recommend Leo &Mike to all the parents and kids. Their programs are a great opportunity and exposure for your child to quality learning with fun. Leo&Mike's team is the best I have known and the set of people handling the whole program are very in-tune with today's requirements of the society, they are very different from what I've seen in other places. My daughter is always eager to go back to their programs.
Leo & Mike is a great place to learn things in an interesting manner. Very good facilitators, equipment and logistical arrangements.
My son went to the robotics camp they had and was totally in love with the experience. I saw the prototypes they made and was definitely impressed with what came out of a three day program from that age group. The facilitators are very professional and thorough with the methods of teaching and brilliant and maintaining a perfect balance between fun and learning.
I really like Leo & Mike, it helped me build new things and I got motivated to pursue my dream of making the world's smartest AI robot. I expressed what it is like to be an inventor and an innovator and I hope leo & mike will be even more fun the next time I go.
I am very lucky to be at Oakridge international school because I am attending and increasing my knowledge and learning different skills by providing different trainings. Leo&Mike workshops are very useful because nowadays technology is going ahead day today but the content has not been changing in some schools. If we update the content and provide training for the newer technologies, the teachers will improve their skills along with their children and will also learn a lot about updated technologies. This will help the students to do their IOT projects using programming and coding with the help of electronics. Thank you “Leo&Mike” team for standing with us. I want to thank Ms.Swathi for helping out at each and every step when I struggled. Thank you.
I was looking for a focussed summer camp for my 9 yr old that had something creative and non competitive. Leo and Mike was perfect. Their focussed 5 day camp themes spread over multiple centres at different times allows us the flexibility to choose the theme of our choice between vacations . The courses are well structured and systematic. The kids are made to collaborate and come out with a project based on the theme which is relevant in real life and this , I think, is the best part of the camp. Looking forward to your after school programs
I really like the idea behind the summer camps. I took my nephew to 5 day summer camp with EPAM. I can surely tell that those 5 days changed him and the way he learns things. Thanks leo&mike team. Keep up the good work.
Unlike other summer camps, Leo and Mike is very unique. They came up with new concepts and activities which makes the learning more interesting for the kids. My son, Ashwadh, is very excited and had great fun in learning things and making projects. And he comes home and tells me everything regarding his activities. He made a rocket and telescope at home and presented it to me. That was so amazing.
My daughter's team not only learned how to learn the tool but actually how to solve a problem using technology and the skills they have. I saw a tremendous change in her in 2 days!
I loved Leo&Mike especially the teachers. It was fun !!!
My son attended 5 days makes junior program. On the second day I asked my kid if he wanted to attend the second session and without a second thought he told me yes! Kids really learned new things in a 5 days session. These classes are helpful for kids to think on their own and applying thought processes. It's really helped a lot.
My daughter, Ranya, has had a lot of fun through this camp learning “ film making “ over just five days. As a parent, I definitely wish to congratulate the entire team of Leo and Mike for making this a worthwhile learning experience and making this a cherished and enriching moment for my child. Hearty congratulations and a big thank you!
The 3 day Leo & Mike workshop was very informative and useful. We learnt a lot about Arduino and Python and it was really fun too. Lots of different brilliant ideas flew about. It was very relevant for us. Thanks for the training. Really worth it. Immediately applicable as well.
I joined my kid for "the incredible human body", it's a week long program for 3hrs. He was taught about the body which he understood quite well. They even focused on healthy eating, hygiene etc.. He never used to eat vegetable sandwich but he started eating what was given in the program. They made all the kids do a presentation at the end of the week , in which all the kids participated actively even 4.5yr old was able to grasp about the program. Very productive and totally impressed. It was worth joining this workshop.
My kids were a part of the 5 days summer camp robotics with the S4A.They enjoyed the program, there were some hiccups in the demo but overall it was a good program.
