Hilo Viking Robotics will be holding a Camp Eureka on December 19th – 23rd

FAQ and signup info from the camp eureka page as follows.  Camp fee will be posted as soon as it’s determined.

What is LEGO NXT?
LEGO NXT is a robotics system designed around the classic plastic building blocks that everyone knows and loves.  The NXT kit makes it possible for kids to create things using ordinary LEGOs, then make their designs come alive using motors, sensors and programming.  They can build a car that will find its way through a maze, or a powerful sumo-bot that will compete with other bots for the ring.  LEGO NXT is a great way to introduce your child to the world of robotics and the many opportunities it has to offer.
