Robotics Camp 2022

Rising 8th, 9th, and 10th graders: Learn To Build And Program Robots!

IHMC’s 2022 Summer Robotics Camp will offer students the opportunity to learn about computer programming and robots. 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 several 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 6 – 9 (for rising 8th graders) and June 13-19 (for rising 9th and 10th graders.) In Ocala, the 2022 summer robotics camps will be offered June 27-30 (for rising 8th graders) and July 11-14 (for rising 9th and 10th graders.) In Ocala, camp will be taught using the Python Language, a “real-world” programming language. The Pensacola sessions will be taught with Lego Mindstorms EV3, a visual programming language.

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 is their first robotics experience, other campers join us several years in a row. This is very fun summer STEM camp!

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