ADVANCED ROBOTICS | Grades 8-12 | August 7-11 | $440

Offered the week of August 7 – 11 from 9 am – 3 pm for students entering grades 8 – 12, or by permission

In our 2021 camp, our Advanced Robotics group began with a brand new, Power Wheels electric car and stripped it down to only the most basic parts. By adding sensors and microcontroller boards, and adapting steering and drive motors, the team succeeded in proving it could operate by remote control and in “autonomous mode” by responding to information received from its sensors. The workspaces and grounds of Hunt Hill Farm proved to be the perfect environment for this project.

This summer, students will work together to improve the design and functionality of the large wheeled robot. The focus will be on mechanical integrity, communications and command-and-control, with the goal of making a robust vehicle capable of navigating its environment, while also carrying equipment to collect environmental data and communicate with its control station. Navigation will be by remote control and autonomous programming.

The project will emphasize discovery, problem solving and teamwork.
