Learn About RoboKai Robotics Camps

Imagine building a robot for a mission to Mars or a deep-sea expedition, or designing your own self-driving vehicle, or building a real life battle bot. At RoboKai, we’re all about building robots and making friends. In our summer camps, we use the excitement of robotics to teach kids from rising K-7th grade engineering, coding, physics and design through engaging hands-on games and activities.

Summer Camp Lineup

RoboKai is Richmond’s only program devoted to the exciting world of robotics. Our experienced summer camp instructors lead students on a journey of exploration using the same engineering design process they will encounter if they pursue careers in engineering and coding fields. It’s never too early to nurture a child’s curiosity for building and tinkering. We keep them motivated by playing fun games and challenges that spark their imagination and develop new skills.

Our camps are divided into age groups for rising K-2nd, rising 3-5th, and rising 5-7th grade students. We offer options for any age and experience level. Our lessons dovetail nicely with STEM curriculum they will encounter in school, from math to physical science to block coding.

Camp themes for Summer 2023 are:

K-2nd Grade: RoboZoo, RoboSports, RoboTales, RoboBuilder, and RoboNaut

3rd-5th Grade: Building Basics, Coding Basics, Simple Machines, Super Car Science, Robots That Work, Self-Driving Vehicles, City Technology, Village Engineering, Ocean Science Exploration, and Mars Math Expedition

5th-7th Grade: Robot Combat, Self-Driving Vehicles, Tug-of-War, Treasure Hunt, and a condensed version of the VEX IQ Competition, the world’s largest youth robotics competition.
