Robotics Camp For Girls
A one week camp at High Technology High School
Cancelled. The Monmouth County School District has cancelled all summer camps at MAST and High Technology High School so we won't be able to offer this camp this summer.
Bummer! But the safety of our students and faculty is paramount.
Come Explore with Us
Are you looking for something fun and creative? Do you like exploring? Do you wonder about the future? We invite you to spend a week with a group of curious girls like yourself. You’ll have fun discovering new skills in the increasingly important world of robotics. You’ll get to talk with professional women who’ll share their stories of finding their passion and answer your questions.

During the Robotics Camp for Girls, you will first learn how to build Android applications using the MIT App Inventor programming language. You will perform live testing of your app on an Android tablet as you program it. The remainder of the camp will then focus on learning how to build, program and control a VEX robot as it interacts with the environment. Finally, you'll use all of your skills to program the robot to complete a maze without any human interaction and participate in a remote-controlled game similar to the official VEX Robotics competitions. More details about our program are here.
Our one week Robotics Camp For Girls is for girls who will complete the 6th, 7th or 8th grades in June 2020.
We paired our Coding Camp For Girls with our Robotics Camp for Girls so you can take one or both. Coding Camp is July 6-10 while the Robotics camp is July 13-17. Each camp costs $300 for the week but you can take both camps for only $500.
