Want to build your very own R2D2 robot? In our hands-on, week-long summer camp, our Jedis-in-training will learn circuitry while learning to code and program their R2D2s to complete tasks such as sound an alarm when an intruder approaches and/or drive using only ‘The Force’! Yes, you read that right, no controllers… with just the wave of a hand you can guide your robot, just like a real Jedi! Our young Jedis will also have fun and develop their creative capacities as they travel to a galaxy far, far away.
