American Robotics Academy

Our mission at American Robotics Academy® is to excite, inspire, and motivate young people about the fun, importance and impact of robotics technology in today’s world. We hope to stimulate their imagination and creativity by encouraging them to explore, experience, and express themselves through our hands-on interactive robotics program. Held in a friendly, sports-like atmosphere, we focus on team-building, problem solving, creativity and fun. Students will be working with the widely known and popular plastic LEGO building blocks, including the more specialized pieces such as axles, gears, beams, wheels, motors, microcomputers, pneumatics and other parts that will enable them to safely create animated and exciting mechanical movements and other effects. The LEGO Technic System has been adopted as the standard material for robotic designers, because of their sophisticated and powerful set of mechanical design components. The fact that they can be disassembled and reconfigured as necessary is essential in testing, design, and instruction.

Our classes teach students to understand “how things work” through hands-on activities that demonstrate the principles of simple and motorized machines. They gain experience with design and problem solving through the use of gears, motors, wheels and axles, pulleys, and remote control devices. Working in age appropriate teams of three, students learn a variety of ways to design a robot to do the things they want it to do. They decide and build, as a team, the best design of their robot for the competition to be held at the end of each class session.

All American Robotics Academy camps are designed around a curriculum that enables students to take a full day/week program or choose to enroll in just morning or afternoon classes.

At American Robotics Academy® , we can provide the guidance and confidence to build simple working robots, as well as the inspiration for more complex robotic inventions.

Cricket Camp

Sport plays a vital role in a child’s physical, mental and emotional well-being. At Sports Movement, we believe that kids need to learn to play multiple sports from a young age. Sports Movement was formed with this objective in mind. We teach Soccer and Cricket to elementary and middle school students. The mission of Sports Movement is to become the leading multi-sport provider and the face of Cricket in the United States.
Cricket is played by billions around the world, from Australia to even Antarctica. It is also the fastest growing sport in the United States, and believe it or not, it is very popular in Austin too.
The benefits of the game are many. It helps to increase stamina and improve body balance and hand-eye coordination. As a team sport, it teaches team skills, helps develop social skills such as communication, cooperation and learning how to cope with winning and losing, and is a great way to meet new people and make new friends.
During this 5 day Cricket camp, participants will learn the basics of the game such as rules, techniques, footwork, handwork etc. We will proceed to play a lot of fun games in batting, bowling, fielding and throwing.
This camp is suitable for students of all abilities in the age group of 6-15. So, if you have played the game before and want to improve, or if you have never played the game at all, it absolutely doesn’t matter. Come, join us and have fun.
All we ask is please come dressed in basic sport attire. All game equipment will be provided by Sports Movement, and you will also get a free T-Shirt.

Days will include games, fitness, foot-work and blade-work sessions, monitored bouting and more!

Neuron Garage

Austin’s Best Summer Day Camp! (Nurture My Child, Yelp, HappiCampr, Austin Family)

When your child can think creatively, work collaboratively, and respond resiliently, they can do anything.

At the Neuron Garage, your children repurpose recycled materials to solve fun, weekly building challenges. Along the way, they build the foundational skills for a vibrant and expansive future.

The problems your children tackle are open-ended, with no set solutions. And the materials they use are simple and multi-purpose. This combination unlocks a level of engagement and resourcefulness that is both joyful and transformational.

Our thoughtfully trained guides teach your children how to tap into their own genius and how to collaborate with their peers for inspiration and support. Campers learn how to give and receive feedback from other campers, how to push themselves to create their best work, and how to recover from frustration and setbacks in order to continue forward. As they build with their hands, these experiences build confidence and resilience, propelling them onto their next challenge — whether at camp or beyond.

The building is FUN. But, it takes energy and focus, so we make sure your child’s day has plenty of time to re-energize with reflection and play.  See what a typical day is like.

While your child is elbow-deep in recycled materials, having fun building with friends and delighting in summertime freedoms, they will be benefiting from a highly intentional program that combines what co-founder Kaylie Reed learned studying neuroscience at Dartmouth and spending over a decade in the classroom, with the hands-on, impactful childhood experiences of co-founder, Sam Reed. Read Our Story.

Some kids come for one week. Some stay for the whole summer, as each week’s challenge is different, and each week offers another opportunity for your children to discover what they are capable of and strengthen their foundation.

Having had hundreds of happy campers at the Neuron Garage, we are so confident your child will enjoy our camp, that we offer our “Garage Guarantee”: If your child does not want to come for a second week, the first week is free. Seriously.
