STEAM2001: SUMMER CAMP - Arduino Robotics

Are you ready to start programming your own robot, and take control of your robotic world?

In this five day TechShop Arduino camp, you will learn how to design, build and program your own microcontroller. This camp will introduce budding makers to the all-powerful arduino board through a weeks worth of training on inputs, outputs and programming. Campers will be able to use their arduino boards to make a multitude of different projects throughout the week, culminating in their very own bot, that goes home with them at the end of camp.

This is a 5 day camp beginning on Monday @ 9:30 and continuing on through Friday @ 3:30.

Every camper will receive an Aruino Bot at the end of camp.
