KEEP KIDS LEARNING WITH UBTECH's CAMP:ASPIRE - a virtual, but experiential summer camp where students learn robotics & other specialized skills, like problem-solving and engineering. Every student gets a robot to keep!
The Summer of 2020 will go down in the history books as one like few of us have seen in our lifetimes. With the likely closure of public swimming pools, parks, libraries and summer camps, children are left with few options for how to stay engaged, curious and active.
As traditional summer enrichment programs have been cancelled, UBTECH and the STEM Learning Ecosystems Community of Practice have partnered to create a series of weeklong virtual, but experiential robotics camps for children 8 and older, to keep students learning.
CAMP:ASPIRE will allow students to immerse themselves in robotics, layered with other specialized skills, like problem-solving and engineering. Participating students will also get to keep robot kits that allow for endless builds and learning.
Using UBTECH Education’s UKIT system and accredited STEM educators, the robotics class options will be open to all levels of learners – beginner to more experienced – and cover topics like biomimicry, sensor technology, prosthetics, and even AI application.
Depending on the program, students will keep the valuable kits at the end of their sessions, or the kits will be returned, sanitized, and re-used by a new group of students. As school transitions back to the classroom in the fall, the UKITs can also be used in the traditional classroom with supported NGSS aligned curriculum and our brand new coding and AI curriculum (coming July 2020).
The camps, which include comprehensive robotics kits that include servos, 500+ pieces and more plus 10 hours of live virtual instruction in a session with no more than six students, one-week classes will range in price from $350 to $425 (exclusive pricing for STEM Ecosystem members), including a robotics kit for every student. Note: additional weeks of camp can be purchased for a reduced cost as well for those budding problem solvers and creators.
In addition to the 10 hours of instruction with a specialized STEM teacher, each camper will also receive another 10 hours+ per week of activities to do on their own, based on their learnings from the virtual class time.
Camp registration starts May 18
Camp sessions begin June 15 and extend through August 24
UBTECH Robotics and STEM Ecosystems have partnered to fill a need in the seemingly ever-changing summer 2020 landscape.
STEM Ecosystems seeks to bring meaningful and experiential STEM experiences to students. Many STEM Learning Ecosystems have been working with UBTECH products and have been searching for summer offerings that would engage students while giving them a robot of their very own to fuel learning.
The UBTECH-STEM Learning Ecosystems partnership is grounded in the desire to bring the experience to as many students as possible, through scholarships, and to also provide funding to enable individual ecosystems to continue to serve their communities.
