Pilot Summer Camp with the FIRST LEGO League - Challenge
David & Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute. July 10 to 28, 2023
From July 10 to 28, 2023, the Pink Titans hosted a pilot summer camp, using the robotics platform of the FIRST LEGO League - Challenge, at David & Mary Thomson Collegiate Institute (DMTCI). Over 85 students in grades 4 to 8 participated. The Pink Titans, along with students from FRC 6135 and FTC 19500, completed the summer camp curriculum by FIRST Robotics Canada. Students learned how to build a programmable robot using the LEGO SPIKE Prime, then program it to complete basic commands, including the use of sensors. Pairs of students completed missions challenges from the 2022-23 SUPERPOWERED season. Students competed on the last day, with the elimination-style playoffs and final matches on display for the parents. Thanks Principal Awara, the summer school staff at DMTCI, FIRST Robotics Canada, and McCall MacBain for the opportunity!
