Robotics camps teach kids some of the essentials of this science and technology and allow them to build robots and learn some of the fundamentals that they can build on in later work.
Campers learn a range of programming and design concepts to create their own modern day robots! They learn about the latest robotics technology being developed in computer science labs. A number of camps are put on by labs or universities with advanced programming already in place. The instructors at these camps are highly experienced and skilled in robotics.
Campers at some robotics camps participate in a final contest to showcase their robotic inventions and hi-tech designs and if students inventions are good enough they may even qualify for broader competition and recognition. Limited financial assistance may be available at some camps for students who have a high academic standing and financial need.
While robotics is the main subject at specialized robotics camps listed below, each student is also given an introduction to multiple disciplines. There are also some camps below that focus more broadly on mechanical engineering, software programming and electronics. All of these are very relevant to robotics, of course.
Students at these camps work in teams to design their robot and program it, thus building team spirit and good social interaction. Robotics is an exciting field with great potential, and campers can gain a lot from the educative and fun-filled “new-generation” camps teaching robotics and related technologies.
Robotics camps are an ideal summer learning experience for middle school and high school students who intend to pursue a science or engineering career. Learn more about each of the robotics summer camps listed below.
