NIC's Lego Robotics summer camps expanding in Port Alberni

Registration is open for NICBotCamps in Port Alberni, which run August 19 – 23. Deadline to register is August 14.

NIC’s popular Lego Robotics summer camps return to Port Alberni this summer with a new Level 2 offering.

NICBotCamps teach students to build, program and control Lego robots while exploring science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) skills.

Along with the usual Level 1 offering, kids with Lego Robotics experience can continue to build their skills with the new Level 2 camp.

“The NICBotCamps have been extremely popular for the last few years,” said Naomi Tabata, manager of NIC’s Centre for Applied Research, Technology and Innovation (CARTI). “Kids explore their creativity as they design, build and program robots that can move, race, dance and complete wacky tasks from their imagination.”

The Level 1 camps are for students aged 9 to 12, while Level 2 is for students aged 10 to 14.

Both camps run August 19 – 23 at NIC’s Port Alberni campus. Deadline to register is August 14.
