This is an intermediate to advanced level program for high school students who have some basic background in introductory level programming or robotics experience. CE Camp 1 is not required for this camp but participants who completed Camp 1 will have the necessary background for CE Camp 2.

Students explore the field of computer engineering by using technology that is currently being used for developing intelligent systems. Embedded computers are found at the core of such systems. This camp uses low-cost and widely available credit card-sized single-board computers. Students learn how to configure and program the single-board computer and communicate with various electronic devices such as a webcam, a motor and robotic sensors. For the final challenge, students build and program a small-scale autonomous vehicle that is controlled by the single-board computer and additional sensors.

Program Fee: Residential $750 (includes 5 nights of room and board, t-shirt, microcontroller kit), Day camp $450 (includes lunch, t-shirt, microcontroller kit).

Need-based scholarships available.

Grades: 9-12 (must have completed 8th grade by June 30, 2020). 

Additional Details: You are required to wear long pants and closed-toe shoes. Bare-midriff tops and open shoes (sandals or flip-flops) are not permitted. Camp size is limited to the first 20 registered students.
