designLab Camp - Robotics and Automated Systems


Robotics is interwoven to the fabric of every single engineering and scientific industry from aerospace and automotive to medicine and nuclear physics.

Join the designLab Director Michael Mitchell for an exploration of mechanical, electrical, and software engineering through state-of-the-art technologies.

Over the course of two weeks, students will engage in project-based learning by modeling the development of a hexapod robot. The first week will cover the build phase, which includes mechanical and electrical integration, calibration, and operation. The second week will cover the control phase, which includes programming, software testing, and app development.

This camp assumes (and prefers) little to no software and/or hardware background.

For each session, students may choose to attend both weeks or just the first week.

Please contact Hunter Martin with questions regarding the workshop.
