Summer Robotics Camps

NATCHITOCHES – Northwestern State University’s Department of Engineering Technology will host two Robotics Camps this summer.  There is no charge to participate in the camps, but due to space limitations, only the first 15 applicants per camp will be accepted.

Robotics Camp for Beginners will be July 11-13 for students ages 7-12.  This session will cover basic electronic circuits, assembly of a robot and basic programming to navigate a robot.

Robotics Camp-Advanced will be July 14-15 for students ages 13-18.  This session will include Arduino programming, advanced sensing, Bluetooth and app programming.

Sessions are held from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. daily and participants will need to bring their own lunch.  The deadline for registration is June 15.

The program is supported by the Natchitoches Chamber Education Fund and NSU’s Department of Engineering Techology.

Registration will be via email.  To register or for more information contact Dr. Jafar AlSharab at jafar@nsula.edu or Curtis Desselles at dessellesc@nsula.edu.
