Registration for Queen City Robotics Alliance 2024 Summer Camps now open

Come build bots with us!

Registration for Queen City Robotics Alliance (QCRA) 2024 Summer Camps is open so now is the time to sign up your kids for summer fun. These weekly camps offer students ages 9-13 (Grades 4-8) the opportunity to learn about and program robots in a collaborative, hands-on environment while learning valuable STEM lessons and real-world life skills. These camps will also introduce students to FIRST® LEGO® League (FLL) Challenge programs where they will learn how to build a robot and bring it to life.

Camps are in one-week, all-day sessions beginning June 24 and run through the week of August 5. All camps take place at The Zone, QCRA’s home for robotics learning. In the morning students will learn coding led by QCRA’s talented peer instructors while in the afternoon the kids will take what they learned to solve an FLL Challenge. On the last afternoon of the camp, students will display their new talents in a robot showcase.

Coding experience is not necessary, but students will need a laptop computer. Contact QCRA to request a computer loan if needed or parents and guardians can purchase a low-cost laptop from E2D. A brown bag lunch is also recommended.

The cost is $320 per student. With special thanks to our longtime sponsor Sullenberger Aviation Museum, QCRA has grants available to families with financial need. Slated to open Summer 2024, the museum is working to increase accessibility and inclusivity in STEM education for students across the region.

“At Sullenberger Aviation Museum, we support our longtime partner Queen City Robotics Alliance,” said Misty Sweat, VP of Education for the museum, “by funding camperships for their summer camps and providing financial aid towards STEM exposure for students lacking economic means. This initiative aligns with our mission to inspire, educate, and elevate the next generation of innovators through accessibility and inclusivity for those that have been historically underrepresented in STEM careers.”
