Robotic Design and Development


When you think of what life will be like in “the future”, what images come to mind? More likely than not, one of the first words that comes to mind is “robots”. In this two week camp, campers will learn what it takes to design, construct, and code their own basic robots.

In the first week, campers will learn the basics of computer programming using the VEX Robotics kit and coding environment. This will allow them to learn the importance of programming in human-robotic interaction.

In the second week, campers will learn the basics of physical mechanics, and apply this knowledge to the construction of their own robots, again using the VEX system. In the end, we’ll divide the campers into teams and have them construct their own robots to compete against each other in a real VEX Robotics Challenge!

STAFF: Tito Fernandez, NRP ’13, is a recent graduate of Northwestern University with a BS/MS, ME/MaDE in Engineering with his masters focus in Robotics and Control. He is the coach of NRP’s robotics team and is one of Northridge’s finest.
