In this year’s summer camp, we will be teaching Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math to students in grades 5 through 8. This camp will be fully taught and facilitated by our team members. This camp will occur for five days. (June 11 -15, 2018) Each day students will attend from 12 pm until 3 pm. If the student is enrolled at Horizon Science Academy Toledo for the 2018-2019 school year the cost will be free, however, if they are not enrolled it will cost only $15! This is a great deal for a STEAM camp. There will be no lunch provided, but students will have fun with multiple hands-on activities and mini-lessons.
Hey, everyone! We are starting a new video series on our youtube channel, called Science with the JAGBOTS. We will be making a new video each week, on a different science demonstration, so we can teach the community about science. Not only are we teaching the community in the series, but we are learning about these topics as well. How we are not the ones doing experiments, we are finding students from the STEM class, that do projects already. After we have run out of students to “Interview” we will do a few experiment ourselves. We hope you will tune in for our first episode with our host Jae-Vhon. The first episode will be titled thermite reactions, we will be learning about these reactions from senior David.
We will be broadcasting on Facebook, the solar eclipse on August 21st. You can join in on our page: facebook.com/ftc6450. We will be working on our new design for our ShoBot, which will be finished by the eclipse. We will use this robot as a tripod to record the Facebook live. Hope you enjoy.
We had a great time at the Ohio State Fair presenting the robot and exploring around. We were able to reach out to about 3,500 people. Even raising a small amount of money in donations to go towards a new 3D printer. We had the chance to meet a small FLL team and an FRC team as well. Afterwards, we had a team picnic which included fishing. Although no fish were caught we still had a great time out there.
Today was the final day of the robotics summer camp. we started off the day with having the students type their entries that they wrote into the engineering notebook on google docs. after they finished with the last engineering course class, we had students call two organizations to set up outreach and Continue reading “Team 6450 JAGBOTS Summer Camp – Day 5”
Thursday was the second to last day of robotics and we started the students out with an entry about the following day and what they have learned.
Once they have written their entries we started out with our engineering notebook class and we taught the student quick and easy tips to type in the engineering notebook. Continue reading “Team 6450 JAGBOTS Summer Camp Day 4”
June 14th was the third day of the summer camp. During the daily overview we worked on our engineering notebook entries. In engineering notebook class we learned how to design an engineering notebook, we learned how the colors of the notebook should be the team colors too.

June 13th was the second day of our robotics summer camp. The students split into two groups and began to assemble their robot. The two groups built a simple base and also added the electronics on. In the engineering notebook class, the students learned how to start an engineering notebook and made their first entry and will continue to make entries until the last day of the camp.

On June 12th, our summer camp started and we had a total of 6 students that came to our camp. We taught the students about the various positions on our team such as business, outreach, building electronics, programming, and engineering notebook.
