In this Summer Holiday Drop-off Camp (individual days can also be booked), held at Caterham Prep School, campers will use Lego to design and build robots to solve real world problems. They will learn to code these machines as well. In addition to the basics of robotics, they will learn key engineering principles such as force and motion, gear ratios and aerodynamics. They will also develop their structural design skills.
