NMSU engineering offers new beginning robotics camp session

Following a sellout robotics camp being held this week, New Mexico State University has added a second session of Beginning Summer Robotics Camp to be held July 28-30. The camp, for children ages 10-17, is provided by the Engineering New Mexico Resource Network, part of the College of Engineering.


The beginning camp provides an introduction to robotics using radio-controlled components and basic programming skills. Participants will utilize the engineering design process as they build a robot with teammates. The robot will be used in a competition at the end of camp. In addition to building a robot for competition, students will work in teams, write an engineering manual, learn basic tool skills and be exposed to a variety of engineering technologies.

The three-day camp is from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Students will need to bring their own lunch. The camp will be held on the NMSU main campus engineering complex.

The cost is $75 per student. For more information or to register for Beginning Robotics, visit https://2015beginningrobotics-lascruces-2.eventbrite.com. Questions may be directed to engr-nm@nmsu.edu or 575-646-2913.
