In addition, there will also be a science week taking place July 29 through Aug. 2.
The Radical Robotics camp is a week long workshop for children to work in together in teams to build robots using Lego NXT technology.

At the end of the week the teams will compete in a Robot Challenge.
The cost is $75 per participant and includes all supplies needed. Session One and Session Two are for beginners and will introduce the robot and a background. The Advanced Session is for those who have previously attended a camp or has been a participant in a FIRST LEGO League team.
