Robotics Camp was started in the summer of 2007 by Avelino Morais, a science and technology elementary teacher. As part of his school program, robotics has helped incorporate physical science components (robotics and engineering) often not seen at the elementary level. Realizing the potential of how building and programming could be used as an educational tool to captivate children, Morais set out to start the Robotics Camp.

 

In the summer of 2007, the Robotics Camp was located in the premises of Westmount Park Church. With the success of the 2007 summer camp, it was obvious that a larger and more accessable facility was needed. In 2008, the Robotics Camp was relocated to Dawson College.

 

Enrolment at the Robotics Camp has significantly increased since 2007. 27 children attended the camp in 2007 and 71 children in 2008. Enrolment grew to 153 children in 2009 and all 208 spots were filled in the summer of 2010. The Robotics Camp continues to expand as demand for placements increase.
