Courses

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 (https://modrobotics.com). 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.

Traditional manufacturing involves the formative and subtractive methods that need several stages and costly production, which constraints the capacity of the manufacturing in the industry. Moreover, these conventional methods don't consider complex systems that are frequently needed in biomedical designs and applications. In this summer camp, the high school students will get to know additive manufacturing techniques and their applications in many industries. Students will design 3D objects (e.g., scaffold, hydrogel, and nanofabrication), convert them into code, and print them. From idea to complete biomedical structure will unleash students' creativity and innovation.
