About this event

Each camp is 2 days, June 13-14, June 21-22, or July 11-12 (advanced camp). Youth should plan to attend BOTH days.

Ready, Set, Robots! introduces teens to technology-related fields and concepts including computer programming, high performance computing, advanced visualization, and networking as they work side by side with IU technology professionals and researchers. Using kits from the LEGO® Mindstorms® series, participants work in small teams to learn the basic computer programming skills needed to command a robot to complete a set of predetermined tasks. Camps culminate in an exciting Robot Grand Challenge in which each team’s robot struts its stuff.

The Ready, Set, Robots! program is hosted by UITS Research Technologies (RT), a center in the Pervasive Technology Institute at IU and is free for all participants - lunch is not provided.
