Robotics Engineering



FULL – Grades 6-9 Co-ed Robotics Engineering (In-Person)

June 27th – July 8th (Updated 3/15/22)

9:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m.



(This camp is full.) In Robotics Engineering, you will develop the knowledge and skills to build a rotating servo robotic arm by the end of the course! You do not need any prior experience of robotics or engineering to participate! From engaging lectures to hands-on build activities, students will dive into the three interdisciplinary fields of robotics: mechanical, electrical, and programming. Students will learn about mechanical builds, 3D CAD (computer-aided design) modeling, and physics techniques. Next, they will use electrical engineering principles to explore circuits, soldering, electrical boards, pins, and wirings. Lastly, students will learn programming in C++ through the Arduino IDE by examining input, output, functions, loops, and flowcharts. This course will be taught by members from the nationally ranked St. Francis & Jesuit Robotics teams (with full adult supervision.)
