We can all imagine a future full of robots. Northridge’s robotics camp is training the next generation of engineers who will make that future a reality. In this two week camp, campers will learn what it takes to design, construct, and pilot their own robots using computer code.
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!
