Robotics Camp




Welcome to Robotics Camp 2020!

This year, HSU’s hands-on, activity-based Robotics Camp will take place from students’ homes via the use of video conferencing and the Internet. This camp is meant to inspire students and foster interest in STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math). Our camp introduces students who are entering 8th and 9th grades to programming and various other STEAM disciplines through fun, age-appropriate activities. Each participant this summer will receive an mBot Ranger robot kit. We will build the kit during the camp and the kit is theirs to keep. Campers will work in teams of two using videoconferencing to solve robot challenges. We know that this Robotics Camp experience will foster a life-long passion for learning!
