Robotics camp Aug. 7-10

Henderson State University’s Department of Engineering and Physics will host a robotics camp Aug. 7-10. Students will use microprocessors and programming basics to meet challenges and build introductory robotics.

“No previous experience is necessary to attend,” said Dr. Shannon Clardy, associate professor of physics. “This camp is for any student entering ninth through 12th grade who is interested in robotics and programming.”

Students will participate in robotics design challenges while learning to code microprocessors and developing fabrication skills such as soldering and 3-D printing.

The camp incorporates daily challenges, as well as an overall team challenge, Clardy said.

The four-day camp will be held in the Reynolds Science Center from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Tuition is $100 and includes daily lunch at Henderson’s dining center and a microprocessor kit that students will keep after completing the camp.
