Student teams will design, build, and program mobile robots to compete in navigating a path with obstacles; program robotic manipulators to perform routine tasks in industry; and learn from several demonstrations related to design and manufacturing of robots, such as Computer-Aided Design, 3D printing, 3D scanning, and CNC milling.
Competing groups of students will develop an autonomous mobile robot for a simulated rescue mission in which the robot has to navigate an arena with obstacles. The students will also learn how to program industrial robots to perform routine tasks, such as pick and place and trajectory following. Several other demonstrations will be performed to teach the students about design and manufacturing of robots, including Computer-Aided Design, 3D printing, 3D scanning, and CNC milling.
For: Ages 15-18
When: June 12-17, 2022
Location: Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University - Prescott, 3700 Willow Creek Road, Prescott, AZ 86301

Summer Overnight Camps
Live on campus like Embry-Riddle students and explore career possibilities in flight, mechanical engineering, global security, or what it is like to be a NASA astronaut.
Embry-Riddle's overnight summer programs at the Daytona Beach Campus and Prescott Campus introduce the technology of today to the aviators, engineers, and astronauts of tomorrow.
Students live in on-campus dormitories — under the supervision of approved counselors — and share their initial experience of University living with other young people near their age.
