STEM Camps

Drobots Camp

At our various Drobots camps, campers learn how to become lifelong learners and are instilled with a strong sense of curiosity, confidence and teamwork. Participants use imagination, hand-eye coordination, and STEM applications to conquer challenges and missions - all in a team-oriented environment. Campers collaborate to deconstruct challenges and then solve them. Below please find four unique types of age-appropriate Drobots camps for your campers in rising grades 1-8.

Drobots Company was originally founded by a small group of parents, educators, visionaries and do-it-yourself engineers. The mission was and still is to inspire students to reduce time in front of a computer screen and instead utilize drone technology in a setting that promotes collaborative project-based learning in a positive educational environment.
