Building Robots for Fun and Profit Summer Camp, 1 day camp, 9th - 12th graders

This one-day camp will introduce K12 students to the world of robotics. Robots, i.e., programmable machines, can assist humans or mimic human actions. Robots are used in many real-life use cases such as manufacturing plants, healthcare, home automation, agriculture, space explorations, to name but a few. In this camp, we will build tiny, modular robots using the "Cubelets" robot framework ( The Cubelets platform is a National Science Foundation (NSF)-supported initiative to teach robotics for the K12 students. In particular, our camp sessions will: (a) start with an overview of the robots and robotics, (b) introduce the students to the Cubelet modular robots, and (c) provide background on computing and programming the robots. The students will work in a group and build and program their robots using a graphical programming interface (called Cubelets Console). The camp will introduce the students to computing, programming, and robotics, develop critical thinking skills, and improve their team-building capabilities. We intend that the activities in this camp will motivate children to learn science, technology, engineering, and math.
