Come Join Our Girls-Only Robotics Camp!
This program will be a hands on adventure into the world of robotics including VEX Robotics, RobotC and more. You need to be curious and interested in exploring; you do not need any previous experience.
First we'll take a quick aside to create an App for your 'droid phone or tablet. You'll be introduced to the MIT App Inventor programming language which will be used to create interactive apps for Android phones and tablets.
Then we'll dive into robotics using the VEX Robotics System. You'll learn to use RobotC to write the code to control the VEX robot that you will build in class! We'll begin with an exploration of various sensors that allow the robot to interact with the environment. This will be followed by the construction of a robot that you will be able to drive with a remote control. All VEX robots will be programmed using the RobotC language.
Finally, you'll choose between participating in a VEX Robotics mini-competition or applying your creativity to a project of your choice using any of the materials previously covered.
During this time, you will also have the opportunity to speak with a former student of HTHS who now works as a professor in MIT’s robotics lab. You’ll see how what you’ve learned relates to the real world.
This class will operate out of High Technology High School located in Lincroft, NJ. Mr. Hanas will be teaching the course assisted by his team of teaching assistants who are currently students at HTHS.
