In this program, participants are going to be introduced to robots and their applications. The introduction to robotics camp will include: a demonstration of the robots in use in the Robotics and Spatial Systems Lab (RASSL), guided construction of a custom robot arm, and mentoring from RASSL members. Each participant will assemble their own individual robot and will learn to control it using a tablet. The participants will be organized into teams and each team will be assigned a mission to accomplish. Participants will program and control their robots to help their team accomplish its mission. The camp will culminate in a Robot Showcase in which the teams demonstrate their robots in action and to accomplish their assigned mission. At the end of the camp the participants will take home their robots and tablets.
