ZERO ROBOTICS SUMMER CAMP 2019

Hello families and welcome to Montclair’s Zero Robotics camp for middle school, the very first of its kind in New Jersey! The ZR competition matches the knowledge and skill of coding with engineering, thus, requiring the skills of problem solving, teamwork, and collaboration. This is a competitive camp program! This means that students enrolled will be working towards learning more about computer programming, robotics, and winning the competition. Students should attend camp with this mindset. Please review this website for more information. http://zerorobotics.mit.edu/tournaments/33/

Dates: *July 8– August 9*
Hours: 8am – 1pm
Days of the Week: M/T/W/Th
Location: Buzz Aldrin Middle School
Cost: $200.00 per Week

Register online at: www.myschoolbucks.com

There may be an additional meeting time in August for all students to video conference live with the astronauts on the International Space Station to watch the winning codes run on the ZR spheres located on the ISS in order to determine a winner. This final meeting date will be determined in July or early August and may be held on the campus of MIT. Please plan accordingly.

Camp Week

Students must arrive promptly for camp meetings. Lunch and snacks will not be provided so all campers should bring a bagged lunch or snacks to enjoy during the session. Campers will be dropped off and picked up in the front of Buzz Aldrin (Monday-Thursday). Also, if your child will be taking passage to and from ZR with someone other than a parent or guardian, a note must be provided to the camp staff, giving permission for that person to transport your child.

Children should dress in layers to be as comfortable as possible. Additionally, if your child has medical concerns, we need documentation of this before they can attend.

We are looking forward to their excitement and including them in this revolution. Please join us! Hurry, space is very limited!
