Robot Kits and STEAM Skills with HSU’s Robotics Camp
Humboldt State University’s popular summer Robotics Camp returns this July!
To inspire students and foster interest in STEAM fields (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math), HSU’s Robotics Camp introduces students who are entering eighth and ninth grades to programming and various other STEAM disciplines through fun, age-appropriate activities. The goals are to learn programming skills and spark a life-long passion for learning.
“Developing and supporting a love of STEAM at an early age is important,” says Computer Science instructor David Marshall. “STEAM knowledge is not just about studying a STEAM subject in school. Almost everything we are doing now and will be doing in the future will include a component of STEAM.”
Each participant this summer will receive a Makeblock mBot Ranger kit (see video). Students will work in teams of two using videoconferencing to build the kit and solve robot challenges.
The camp runs July 20-24 and July 27-30 during the afternoon. Cost is $300. Participants will work from home and will need a Windows computer and network connection. To register and for more information, visit camps.humboldt.edu or contact Molly Pucillo at firstname.lastname@example.org.
