This Camp-on-a-Disk CD-Rom leads young campers to the edge of the universe in a robotic adventure that glimpses a future when humankind will transform distant planets into livable habitats.

In this NXT-based Camp-on-a-Disk adventure, campers are first tasked to learn basics in the training areas on the Space Shuttle Entropy. Next, campers visit a series of moons, where they hone their terraforming skills. The adventure culminates on the planet Pantheon. Robo campers help transform Pantheon into an environment where humanoids can live and thrive. STEM education is a fundamental part of the Terraformers experience, expounding science, technology, engineering and math concepts in an engaging 'hands-on minds-on' environment.

Using LEGO MINDSTORMS Education NXT 1.1 or 2.0 software (NXT-G) and the Lego Mindstorms NXT kit, guided navigation leads campers forward along this imaginative mission into space, The CD-Rom also includes: graphics files for creating themed paper props, a guide for camp facilitators, training videos, robot building guides, editable registration forms, gameboard instructions and more. Resource Kit 9648 may be used to augment the activities.
