Brick Scholars is offering educational summer day camps next month at the Imagination Station Science and History Museum in Wilson and N.C. Wesleyan College in Rocky Mount.

The Animal Safari Robotics and Storytelling Camp for rising kindergarteners through second-graders is planned from 9 a.m. to noon June 11-15 at Imagination Station.

This safari-themed camp introduces children to robotics and coding and also incorporates storytelling. Students build and program robotic lions, monkeys, birds and an alligator. Students will build habitats and settings for their stories and animal robot characters. Campers construct Lego WeDo 1.0 robots, program them to move, make sounds and add special effects. Students will receive a field notebook for their observations and a safari mini-figure and animal build to take home.

Space Adventures, a Star Wars-themed robotics camp for rising third- through sixth-graders, runs from 1-4 p.m. June 11-15 at Imagination Station.

Brick Scholars will construct, then program futuristic robotic models using Lego Education WeDo 2.0, and write an epic story of their journey into space. Participants return home with a digital storybook of their adventures that showcases photos of their robotic builds, storyscapes and adventures.

The cost for either Imagination Station camp is $175. Parents can register their children online at www.brickscholars.com.

The Gateway Technology Center at N.C. Wesleyan will host “Build a Robotic Theme Park” for ages 7-12 from 9 a.m. to noon June 18-22 and “Superheroes Comic Book and Stop-Motion Camp” for rising first- through fifth-graders from 1:30-4:30 p.m. on the same dates.

More information and registration instructions are available on the Brick Scholars website.
