Computer Science Robotics Camp (Online)
This STEM-focused online coding camp provides hands-on experience with the open-source Arduino microcontroller and related components. Students will be shipped their own kits and will work with LEDs, LCDs, potentiometers, photoresistors, servos and circuit design, perfect for learning the basics of electrical engineering. Programming of the microcontroller will be taught in a variant of the C/C++ programming language, the industry standard for robotics and embedded computing. Computer science and programming concepts will be highlighted. Students will also build an autonomous robot, which will perform various tasks.
Instructor will have two live sessions per day and will also have access to pre-recorded instructional videos.
