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

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!
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.
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!
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.
I loved Leo&Mike especially the teachers. It was fun !!!
My son is a hands-on learner but has always done things on his own. Leo&Mike’s program made him work with a team. And looks like he enjoyed it thoroughly. His team made a battery-powered skating shoe prototype. He is thrilled.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
