Robotics Camp 2023

Rising 7th, 8th, 9th, and 10th graders- Learn Programming and/or Robotics!

IHMC’s 2023 Summer Robotics Camp will offer students the opportunity to learn about computer programming and robotics. Campers will work in teams to master Lego Mindstorms challenges. They will further develop their teamwork skills, their confidence in problem solving, and their creativity. Campers will hear short presentations about state-of-the-art research at IHMC, and they will have the opportunity to eat lunch with an IHMC research scientist, in small groups. In Pensacola, camp includes a tour of the IHMC robotics lab.

The Pensacola summer robotics camps will take place June 5 – 8 (for rising 8th graders) and June 12-15 (for rising 9th and 10th graders.) In Ocala, the 2023 summer robotics camps will be offered June 26-29 (for rising 8th graders) and July 10-13 (for rising 9th and 10th graders.) The July camp will not include robotics this year – it is a Python Programming Camp.

No previous experience with robots or programming is needed for any of the four sessions. All campers will be partnered with another student with similar levels of experience. For many campers this will be their first STEM experience of this kind, others have been exposed to programming or robotics in school or in after-school clubs. Some campers join us several years in a row. This is very fun summer STEM camp for anyone interested in programming or robots.

Financial assistance is available for qualified families. Volunteer opportunities with credit towards Bright Futures scholarships are available for rising 11th and 12th graders.
