LEGO Robotics Camps, Events and Workshops in Columbus, Ohio

We empower kids to become engineers, programmers, inventors and entrepreneurs... all while having FUN with like-minded kids and inspiring instructors. We offer in-person camps in Columbus, Ohio area, small private BattleBot events, and Live, Interactive Virtual Camps.

Good news! Governor DeWine announced that summer camps will be allowed to operate starting June 1, 2020 so we plan on holding all scheduled camps for Summer 2020! We know that your kids love the opportunity to engage with other like-minded students for exciting BattleBot Battles (everyone takes turns winning), fun presentations from the Robot Guy, and rewarding student award ceremonies with large trophies. We will be holding safe, small in-person camps June thru August 2020 in Dublin, Westerville and New Albany. We will be following steps to comply with CDC's guidelines.

Our Interactive Live Online STEM Camps and In-person LEGO Robot Camps guarantee a 1 to 6 Teacher Student ratio with 1 to 1 help when needed to ensure success. Camps are filling up fast - sign up today!


We Build Confidence!
Each student wins a special trophy, ribbon or medal by accomplishing hands-on robotics challenges (with the help of our talented and patient instructors)

Ultra-Qualified Instructors:
Many of instructors have won international awards for LEGO robotics, and all have passed background checks.

Proven Curriculum:
Founded in 2006, the Robot Academy has helped thousands of young students to engage passionately with science and tech. Many of our students have gone on to win national science championships!

Emphasis on FUN!
With activities that stimulate and educate, we show kids that robotics/engineering can be super fun!

Individual Attention:
6:1 ratio of students to instructors.

Camps for Ages 4-8, or 9-16:
We group our students by age and provide extra guidance and encouragement to whomever needs it. Senior campers are given harder challenges and additional freedom, but both camps receive one-on-one help from instructors.

All Skill Levels:
No LEGO robotics experience necessary!

Columbus' ORIGINAL and longest-running LEGO Robotics Camp

Robot Academy hosts a variety of technology camps in locations around Columbus, for example, Dublin, Gahanna, New Albany, and Westerville.  At these action-packed summer tech camps, kids age 4-16 design, build, and program working LEGO robots (using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 & NXT) and invent contraptions using 3D Modeling/Printing. It's the ultimate STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) experience.

What's unique about our Summer STEM Camps? First of all, they're FUN! Our goal is to encourage and uplift our students, so we make sure every camp activity is ridiculously fun. Secondly, we're the only STEM camp that combines Inventing and 3D Printing with LEGO Robotics. We're also the only STEM camp that's taught by actual world champion robot-builders and technology teachers (all teachers have passed background checks). We have the best student:teacher ratio in the industry (6:1), and this one-on-one interaction with students helps us to customize camp activities to the skill level of individual students. Our students leave camp saying things like "this was the best day of my life!" and "I want to be an engineer!"

Is your child a Boy Scout, Girl Scout, or Cub Scout? Cool! Our Full-Day summer camps fulfill the requirements for a robotics badge. Schedule a 2-hour BattleBot event at your meeting location to earn a Girl Scout STEM badge or Boy/Cub Scout Robotics badge.

Is your child interested in FIRST Lego League (FLL)? Many of our instructors and camp graduates have won international FLL championships. We work with ERCO (Educational Robotics of Central Ohio) to form FLL Teams for our camp graduates. Our 5-Day, Full-Day camp prepares prospective FLL students for success by providing them with a solid foundation in robotics, inventing, and teamwork (the three core judging categories of FLL). Camp graduates are invited to a separate meeting in August where we plan for the FLL season and form teams.

5 Full Days (9:30a-4:30p and 9a-5p with extended care): $495

Lego BattleBot Engineering, Invention and 3D Printing MegaCamp
Our most popular option for budding engineers who love LEGOs. This camp combines our 5-day morning and afternoon camps with a supervised lunch break in-between. Students complete robot challenges to earn points in the morning and afternoon sessions. The trophies at the end of the camp are based on points earned by accomplishing robot challenges in the morning and afternoon sessions, so students have twice the chance to win tall trophies to reward their achievements. Award ceremonies are a fun celebration of our students' talents. This year we will take pictures and film the award ceremony since we cannot have an audience due to the Governor's guidelines. Individual help for students to ensure success.
The best week of your child's summer: Learn 3D Printing, Compete in an epic BattleBot championship, practice EV3 programming, and invent new robot designs. Everything you need to become a Lego Robot Master Builder!

Register for Ages 4-9 Register for Ages 9-16



5 Mornings (9:30p-12:30p and 9a-1p with extended care): $249

Lego Robotics InventionLAB and 3D Printing Camp
Bring your ideas to life! We teach 'rapid prototyping', a technique that involves quickly building prototypes of invention ideas using cardboard, LEGOs or 3D printers. Kids design and build custom inventions with the help of their instructor and then present their prototypes to a Shark Tank panel (like on the TV show)! Kids enjoy presenting killer pitches to the judges with the help of their new friends and reaping the rewards (we give the students a lot of tips and talk them through their pitches in advance to make sure they're successful). Our instructors have won international invention competitions, so your kids are learning from the best. Students complete robot challenges to earn points to win tall trophies to reward their achievements. Award ceremonies are a fun celebration of our students' talents. This year we will take pictures and film the award ceremony since we cannot have an audience due to the Governor's guidelines. We have individual help from Instructors to make sure that all students not only win trophies, but also gain confidence and a big smile.

5 Afternoons (1:30p-4:30p and 1p-5p with extended care): $249

Lego BattleBot Building/Programming Camp
This camp features our famous BattleBot championship, where student-made robots "battle to the death". With the help of world champion robotics instructors, students will learn to program BattleBots in the Mindstorms EV3 language using sensors and logic. Beginners (and younger students) will master basic programming, while experienced programmers (and older students) will learn more advanced techniques for ensuring the success of their BattleBots. We run the BattleBot rounds until all campers have a chance to win. Students also complete robot challenges to earn points to win tall trophies to reward their achievements. Award ceremonies are a fun celebration of our students' talents. This year we will take pictures and film the student award ceremony since we cannot have an audience due to the Governor's guidelines. Instructors provide individual help to make sure all students win trophies and are happy campers.

2 Afternoons (1:30p-4:30p): $125

BattleBot Camp
Kids build and program Lego robots to compete in a BattleBot championship! The robots will battle “to the death”, and the designers of the "last robot standing” for each round will win ribbons. No experience necessary - we teach kids everything they need to know to put together a winning BattleBot. Students will also complete individual building and programing activities.
