Robots & God Workshop ( ages 8–18 ) - Columbus

by Camp Infinity
Explore the wonders of STEM from a Biblical worldview with Camp Infinity's Robots & God workshop.

This 3-hour program for children (ages 8-18) is divided into two grade-level groups: 3rd-6th and 7th-12th (We separate by grade to maximize the best experience for each child, however if your child has attended one of these workshops they are welcome to sign up for the more advanced session as long as they are at least in the 5th grade). When you sign up, you select ONE 3-hour time slot for either Friday morning, Friday afternoon, Saturday morning, or Saturday afternoon. Availability is limited. Based upon attendance we reserve the right to reassign children and you will be notified via an email from campinfinity.com. Availability is limited.

During the program, you will get a close-up introduction of how robots work using the LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3. Together with a small team of other participants, you will get hands-on experience building and programming a robot to respond to light, touch, distance, recognize colors or execute other programmed commands. This provides students with an excellent exposure to STEM. Camp Infinity's mission is to teach STEM from a strong Biblical worldview. Past participants will be challenged and inspired as they build upon what they've learned and take their robots to a higher level of complexity.

Dan Wooster taught college computer science for 30 years, started several successful computer businesses and recently founded Camp Infinity—Where Science & Technology Meet Truth.

My child has already participated in a Robotics and God by Camp Infinity workshop. Will it be the same as last time?

While the structure is the same, the projects vary based on your child's experience level. We have never had a child say he/she was not challenged. The cool thing about robotics is there really is no limit as to what we can teach your child.

What robot kit will my child use?
The LEGO Mindstorm EV3.
How many students are placed be on a team?
We place 3 to 4 children on a team.
Can siblings work together?
Since our robotics workshops are based on team building, the older sibling would need to attend the workshop of the younger sibling. Siblings who desire to work together need to arrive together.
Can we request teammates?
Teammates may be requested if they are in the same age bracket and they arrive for the workshop together.
Can we stay with our child?
Teams tend to work better together when parents are not a factor.
Are these workshops run by TTD?
No, they are run by Camp Infinity.
Who is Camp Infinity?
A unique STEM and Biblical apologetics camp that works closely with Answers in Genesis. This camp has been providing these Robots and God workshops around the country for TTD and others for the past five years. Please note that you will receive emails from campinfinity.com concerning your child's workshop. We highly recommend you add *.campinfinity.com to your spam filter to allow these emails into your inbox. Unfortunately, some families have not received emails from Camp Infinity and have missed their workshops.
Does Camp Infinity offer scholarships?

Yes. We offer scholarships on summer overnight camps for TTD participants who attend a Camp Infinity workshop. Email info@campinfinity.com  for details.

My child has been in the first Lego league. Will he be challenged at your workshop?
We have worked with many FLL members and have found that they are more exposed to robotics through this workshop. We have a much lower camper/robot ratio than most FLL teams.
Will my child have his own robot to work on during the workshop?
No, there is much more value in STEM through teamwork. We have found that the teamwork aspect is the one of the most valuable benefits to STEM. However, we keep our team sizes small, typically 3-4, in order to maximize the amount of exposure each child gets to the robot.
Will I get to see what my child’s team has built?
Yes, at the end of each workshop each team will have the opportunity to show parents what they accomplished with their robot. Parents need to arrive on time 20 minutes before the workshop is over. Please note that as soon as the demonstrations are over the teams will disassemble their robots.
