The Patriot Robotics Summer Institute provides students the opportunity to create, develop, discover and have fun. The “Intermediate Robotics” program explores advanced mechanical features such as scissor lifts and gear ratios. The course introduces the connection between hardware and software with a first look at basic programming. Participants will use the VEX Robotics platform to investigate these design features and build robots to perform a specialized task. In small groups, the participants will work together to achieve a common goal. They will learn to budget time and resources to meet the goal.
The Patriot Robotics Summer Institute provides students the opportunity to create, develop, discover and have fun. The “Introductory Robotics” program explores basic robotics features such as driving, lifting and grabbing to find the best robot feature suited for a task. Participants will work in small groups and use the VEX Robotics platform to investigate these mechanical design features. The program fosters the skills of teamwork, hand-eye coordination and spatial awareness. The groups will construct robots to compete in daily Mini Challenges and conclude the week with a Robots Tournament.
This course provides an intensive (and extensive) continuation of the concepts of computer programming and data structures that use the Scheme language developed at MIT. While the course starts at the beginning, by the end of the second week students will have covered much of Viewpoint’s Computer Science and Intermediate Computer Science courses, including many different data structures used within the context of programming video games.
**This course is in line with Viewpoint's Computer Science Curriculum
Dates: July 1 - July 3 Times: 9:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m.
Instructor: Mr. Lance Argano-Rush
Grades: 7 – 12
Interested in 3-D modeling or engineering design? Do you want to learn about the revolution in 3-D printing? Participants will learn how to use SolidWorks, a design CAD software program, to create and test engineering challenges. The course will teach you to build parametric models, assemblies, and how to make drawings of those parts. No previous knowledge of CAD or engineering is necessary.
•Introduction to Solid Modeling on Solidworks
•Creating part files for individual components
•Creating assemblies of multiple parts
•Creating details & assembly drawings
•Introduction to Rapid Prototyping using 3D printing
Viewpoint Summer program is a Calabasas Summer camp located in Calabasas, California enrolling grades K-12 for academic summer camp programs, service learning programs like our Camp Coyote, fine arts, performing arts, sports, robotics camps and technology summer programs, and more. Our Calabasas summer camp is located right outside of Los Angeles and is one of the best summer camps in the Los Angeles area. Nestled between the Santa Monica Mountains and the Conejo Valley, Viewpoint summer programs is a premier day camp with bus service.
