St. Paul Robotics Camps

Unleash your child's potential and love for robotics this summer at Macalester College. 

From its location in the middle of two bustling cities to its history of providing an education comparable to that of the Ivy League, it’s impossible not to feel inspired. 

Such an exciting learning environment is more than just a backdrop—it's a dynamic space that stimulates creativity, sparks curiosity, and encourages exploration.

When you add robotics and 25 years of legendary iD Tech traditions to the mix, words don’t do the experience justice. (But, we’ll certainly try!)

From virtual robotics and Scratch to new BattleBots® courses, robotics camps for ages 7-17 are available now. 

Registration is live, and seats fill quickly.

On Campus at Macalester College

In between robotics camp sessions at Macalester College, students will:

  • Chow down in the Cafe Mac dining hall located in the Campus Center
  • Walk the same halls as iconic alumni
  • Explore famous campus landmarks like the Ruth Stricker Dayton Campus Center and Old Main
  • Bond with friends during outdoor activities and games on the Great Lawn and Shaw Field
  • Laugh ‘til their sides hurt with spontaneous dance-offs, theme days, and Pie-Your-Instructor Fridays

"Robot camp for the win! The first thing about the camp is that the hours were great. The camp day was as long as a workday so drop off and pick up times were good and the process was very easy. My son said he loved the camp and really enjoyed building his robot. I also think the staff was great. They were really friendly and really seemed to support the kids and empower them to come out of their shells."
