About the Camp:
This camp teaches engineering design, programming and automation. We use the Fischertechnik building platform (http://www.fischertechnik.biz/) which is easy for the students to construct different automated systems. Students will learn the basics of flowcharting and logic to write programs for their systems. Students will construct sumo bots and will have a sumo bot tournament on Wednesday. You may sign up for multiple sessions. Instruction is delivered based on the student. We group students based on experience and if they have participated in the past to extend their knowledge base. If you sign up for Session 1 and 2, students may bring a packed lunch and eat in the classroom between sessions.
