Rockin’ Robots

Two Week Day Program
AGES 10-12

Telluride Academy is proud to partner with the esteemed engineers and scientists of Telluride’s Neuromorphs for this “rockin” robotics collaboration! Under the watchful eye and expert guidance of our own robot specialists, aspiring engineers will explore locomotion and create their own bio-inspired robots using small electronics, cardboard, and art supplies. Possible projects include a petting zoo, a parade, interactive masks, puppets, and more. Program your own “Hummingbird Robotics Kit” using Snap and BirdBlox software. Use sensors to see, hear, and feel the environment as you explore human computer interaction and physical computing. Meet and mingle with top scientists from the Neuromorphic Cognition Engineering Workshop and showcase your designs in a grand finale Rockin’ Robots Showcase!

Telluride Academy's Overnight Policy

Our talented instructors work hard to combat student homesickness on overnight programs. For many students, this experience might be their first time camping or away from home! In the days leading up to the overnight(s), the instructors have positive conversations with the groups to get them excited and prepared for their overnight adventures. This dynamic gets interrupted when a student is picked up early from their overnight. For this reason, we can not accommodate early pick-ups, unless in the case of an emergency. If your child does not want to attend the overnight, or if you have prior commitments that require early pick-up accommodations, we ask that you consider choosing a day program instead. Please call our office with any questions or concerns.
