$315 for AU employees, $345 for non-AU employees (by June 12th; $30 late fee after 5pm on June 12)
Working in teams, students engage in real-world design scenarios that will culminate in a friendly competition on the last day of the camp. Students are introduced to the engineering design process and the importance of engineering notebooks and will gain hands-on experience programming and building robots using VEX robotics kits. The programming portion teaches logic that is applicable to any other programming language and the VEX robotics control system is used in other robotics competitions such as BEST Robotics. Students will receive a camp T-shirt and participate in activities led by robotics experts and experienced science teachers. Students should plan to bring a sack lunch each day.
