Robotics Camp is offered for Grades 3-5 and Grades 6-9. In the Robotics Camp, each co-ed group will explore Autodesk inventor, Digital Electronics and 3D Printing. Our older age group will dive a little deeper into coding with Java and CAM (computer aided machining). The program is based on competition where campers will be placed in a small group and have their robots compete against one another throughout the summer. This camp is taught by the Pre-Engineering Prototyping Lab Manager, Mr. Salafia!
Massimo Salafia earned his degree at the Engineering Trade School in Friedbeng, Germany and then worked as a Mechanical Engineer at Pheiffer GmbH, Faust GmbH and Gassella GmbH in Frankfurt, Germany. Mr. Salafia holds several intellectual patents on mechanical devices, and he brings his experiences to the Pre-Engineering Prototyping Lab at American Heritage. He has been a mentor for the FIRST Robotics Competition Team since 2009, imparting his knowledge with students to help them foster intellectual growth. His goal as an engineering teacher at American Heritage School and Robotics Camp is to share his passion for engineering and provide a learning environment where students feel safe, welcome, and motivated to be the next generation of problem solvers.
Camper groupings vary by program. Day Camp programs will be grouped by age/grade/gender, Specialty Programs are grouped together by age, interest, and/ or skill level. Programs are not guaranteed and require a minimum enrollment. Campers are supervised at all times by our energetic and fully-trained staff. Our counselors are carefully selected based on experience, character, and leadership. Every staff member is background checked, as we continue to maintain the highest level of safety and security on campus. At American Heritage Day Camp we do our very best to make sure our staff is placed with the appropriate age group to ensure a successful and fun summer. A well-balanced lunch and healthy snacks are provided in all full-day programs. If you have any additional questions please feel free to contact us.
