The end of the school year does not necessarily mean robotics team members take the next several months off. Instead, those looking to further their robotics education in advanced mechanical systems may opt to attend robotics summer camps.
According to the Stars and Stripes, a robotics summer camp will be held in Weisbaden, Germany, from August 15 to19. The day camp will further the education of ninth and tenth grade students who belong to the Department of Defense Dependent School Branch.
The agenda for the week has already been set. Students will be challenged to design and manufacture robotics system based on demanding parameters, stated the news source. According to camp planners, attendees will have to create a “sumo wrestling robot and a tightrope-walking robot.”
Experts say that robotics education may help prepare students for careers in STEM-related industries. Therefore, additional learning resources, such as summer camps, may be appealing to students interested in the science and technology fields.
According to the Observer & Eccentric, the Northville High School robotics team from Northville, Michigan, will also be holding a day camp during summer school vacation. Attendees will learn how to program and build Lego robots.
