This summer, Mid-America Air Museum is expanding its robotics summer camp schedule to eight weeks with activities for children ages 6 to 14.

Last year, the museum’s new robotics summer camps filled up with waiting lists within three weeks of publicity, said director Jim Bert.

The Mars “Curiosity” Robotics Academy Summer Camp schedule for 2014 is:

• June 2-6 and June 16-20 – morning session with kindergarten and first grade from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. and afternoon session for second and third grade from 1 to 4 p.m.;

• June 9-13 – morning session for fourth through eighth grade from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon session for kindergarten and first grade from 1 to 3 p.m.;

• June 23-27 – morning session for fourth through eighth grade from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon session for kindergarten and first grade from 1 to 4 p.m.;

•  July 7-11  – morning session for second and third grade from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon session for fourth through eighth grades from 1 to 4 p.m.;

• July 13-18 – morning session for second and third grade from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon session for second and third grade from 1 to 4 p.m.; and

• July 28-Aug. 1 – morning session for fourth through eighth grade advanced from 9 a.m. to noon and afternoon session for kindergarten and first grade from 1 to 3 p.m.

The fee for kindergarten and first grade summer camps is $30 per child. For second and third grade, the cost is $35 per child, and for fourth through eighth grade, the price is $45 per child. Because of fixed instructor costs, fees are non-refundable.

Each session is limited to 16 children, and the sessions will fill fast.

“Please call to reserve your child’s place in Liberal’s most exciting and challenging robotics program,” Bert said. “All classes are taught by Kansas-certified teachers using standards-based robotics curriculum.”

“Generally, we require grades K-3 children to be ages 6-9 as of June 1; grades 4-8 children to be ages 9-13 as of June 1; and advanced grades 4-8 children to have experienced either one previous 4th-8th grade session and/or have completed at least one First Lego League robotics season,” Bert said.
