So two years ago I came up with the idea of offering Technology “Camps” during the school year. These run for one week at a time from before school through advisory. Each one focuses on a different technology topic. Students complete applications and the first 24 to return their complete application are in the camp. I have offered camps on Scratch, Kodu, Blender, PhotoShop, Stop Action Animation, and Robotics. My most popular camp is SumoBots. Students work in teams of 2-3 to build NXT Robots that compete against each other to dominate the Sumo Ring. I made the rings out of MDF board and painted them black and white. The next camp starts the first week of December and I started advertising today for it. Here is the Animoto video that I created from video of the previous two years of SumoBots. I am looking forward to working with these students and seeing what they come up with this year!
