Students building a robot

High School Robotics Camps

Monday, August 1 - Thursday, August 4, 2022
9:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. Daily, In-person Residential Camp 

This autonomous-only programming camp is for high school students who crave more time developing autonomous programs for their robots. Participants will take functional FRC robots and write autonomous programs for game challenges using sensors, camera, PID loops and vision tape.

During this one-week course, students will use the programming language - JAVA). They will have the chance to compete in 15-second and 45-second challenges with trophies on the line. Note: Basic FRC programming knowledge (ability to program a moving drive train) is required.

As a residential camp where students reside on-campus, additional evening activities may include: campus tour, engineering degree program presentations, Mobility Research Center activities, programming and flying drones and more.

Grades: 9-12

Cost: $600
