several activities this summer that are focused on robotics and programming, at
the comfort of your home. This camp’s goal is for students to dive into the
world of robotics while having fun. The students will be introduced to several
topics such as robot mechanisms and programs through virtual robotics, machine
learning and AI, 3d modelling, working with microcontrollers and more!
4th – July 29th
Thursday, 10 am – 12 pm

Virtual Robotics with Vex VR
If you don’t
have a physical robot at home, you can simulate one virtually. Simulate robots and its different mechanisms
using block style coding or a Python interface. Understand different robot
drivetrains, use of sensors, environment interaction, and more. Also extend
your knowledge of using variables, retrieving and calculating information,
understanding conditional statements and more!
projects: Maze solver, Basketball shootout, Fun with Colors, Cora l Reef Clea nup etc.
Machine Learning and AI with
introduced to basics of Machine Learning and AI through an easy, interactive
and fun experience with graphical programming. Create models and train them to
get smarter and smarter without any user human interaction. Concepts such as
computer vision, face detection, optical character recognition, IOT, machining
learning based on image, pose and audio etc. will be explored.
projects: Home Automation, AI Chatbot, Toy Recognizer etc .
3D Modelling with OnShape
engineering principles through designing cars, airplanes, buildings, robots and
more using 3D modelling principles. Convert your 2D drawing into a 3D design in
no time using tools by OnShape. Learn about designing parts and assemblies
based on creative solutions that help solve engineering design problems.
projects: Robot structures, Spaceships, Bridges etc.
Arduino Projects with TinkerCAD and a
Learn how to
design circuits using microcontrollers with Arduino. This includes basic
connections, switches, pushbuttons, motor control, sensors etc. This will be
done through virtual simulation on tools developed by Autodesk, and also At-Home
Kits for students to get hands on experience at home.
projects: Motion sensing, Gate Automation, Traffic Lights etc.
