Robotics - Studio - Sullivan College of Technology and Design

Campers will spend time building and modifying simple machines with a goal of combining or automating them to complete a Chain Reaction Challenge. With that foundation, they will move on to build a basic robot that functions in teleoperated mode (remote control) and add original object manipulator assemblies to participate in a team-based competitive challenge (Robot Soccer). In the following days, campers will experiment with pre-programmed sensor functions and then complete individual programming challenges to customize sensor functions. They will then build and operate the full Clawbot IQ with Sensors and experiment with both a controller and autonomous programming to control it. On their final day of camp, students will focus on the Highrise Challenge, completing a teleoperated mode (remote control) version of the challenge in the morning, then optimizing their robot and programming throughout the day to compete in an autonomous mode Highrise Programming Challenge at the end of their camp experience.
