UBTECH Education and the STEM Learning Ecosystems are offering a super cool summer camp for kids interested in robotics.
Camp:ASPIRE is a virtual robotics camp that provides a fun, hands-on learning experience from home. Enrolled kids receive a hands-on building kit with all the motors, parts, and sensors needed to make their own robots and solve challenges introduced by the instructors. Virtual teachers, who also happen to be real-life teachers, instruct kids how to code, as well as how to program real robotics.
Designed for kids ages 8 through 16, there are beginner and intermediate courses. Course options include: Robotics, Coding and Engineering; Animal Robots: Designing robots to mimic animal movements; Robotics and Sensors: Building robots to interact with the world; and A Helping Hand: Designing robots to solve problems.
From June 15th to August, each session runs for five days with four hours of work per day. The cost is $400 or $500, depending on the program. Click here to view the schedule and to register.
Ten percent of registration fees are put towards scholarships for kids whose families need assistance with tuition. You can learn more about scholarship opportunities here.
