Our two camps, RoboCamps and FalconCamps, are guaranteed to be a fit for students of all ages 8+; regardless of prior knowledge. Both camps will actively engage all campers in STEM related activites in an interactive and friendly environment. Lessons will be taught by experienced members of our team with the comprehensive content knowledge (mentors, subteam leads, and veteran members). RoboCamps is geared towards younger students and provides a hands-on experience through physical robot kits, even though the classes are online. FalconCamps offers comprehensive robot workshops in robot-centric programming and design to older middle and high school students.
Team 4099 is Poolesville High School’s FIRST Robotics team, based out of Poolesville, MD. Our school is consistently the top high school in Maryland and the top 100 in the country. We design, build, wire, and program robots to compete in the FIRST Robotics Competition. Team members design and build these robots from scratch (robots consist of upwards of 300 custom-designed and machined parts, as well as over 10,000 lines of code written over the course of a 2-month build season). Team 4099 is teaching the same content through our camps that members master over the course of this build season -- let our competition robots speak for themselves.
At RoboCamps, students ages 8-14 will learn and develop math, engineering, and computer science skills through a week-long robotics experience in which they work to design, build, and program a robot. The camps culminate in a final competition which will allow students to show off what they have made.
RoboCamps consist of five online sessions, each five hours long, with a 4:1 camper to counselor ratio. Campers will communicate with each other to create a friendly and fun environment. They will build their individual robots to accomplish a specific challenge while competing against other students. Students will be guided by experienced members of Team 4099 who will teach them.
At FalconCamps, middle and high school students students will learn about mechanical engineering and programming in the context of competitive robotics in an interactive and friendly environment. The camps culminate in a final project which will allow students to show off what they have learned.
FalconCamps consist of five online sessions, each two hours long, with a 4:1 camper to counselor ratio. Campers will work together on some parts of their projects to foster teamwork and to provide a fun learning environment. Lessons will be taught by experienced members of our team with the comprehensive content knowledge (mentors, subteam leads, and veteran members).
