In this camp, students will learn STEM concepts and the Engineering Design Process, and apply these concepts to design, build, and program robots using a novel robotics education platform, SnappyXO. The program is open to students who reside in Nassau or Suffolk County and are entering the 7th - 12th grade in the 2022-2023 school year.
MTRC is pleased to partner with Mechanismic, Inc. to offer a virtual session of the Design, Innovation, and Robotics Camp, a STEM-based program that offers hands-on experiential learning in an online setting.

2019 Innovation of the Year Awardee
The camp uses a refreshing, innovative model of robotics instruction that goes beyond opportunities offered elsewhere.
- Christine F., Parent
Totally awesome! I feel my son learned a lot of new skills on coding.
- Eric T., Parent
Great opportunity for kids to learn from experts in the field.
My child now has an appreciation for collaboration in obtaining an end result and meeting new friends.
Kids were taught and provided the means to understand the concepts and then given the tools to make their robots in teams.
- Marisa B., Parent
A great way to expose young people to robotics and challenge them.
Learning how to build, design and create robots; meeting other young people who share similar interests; working with college level students.
- Christine B., Parent
This was an amazing camp, he learned so much in such a short time! He loved it so much and made some great friends.
- Carol H., Parent
The kids enjoyed attending. It was hands-on and taught them something they had no experience in.
- Kristina L., Parent
My son truly enjoyed himself.
He learned so much coding new programs, etc. Absolutely would recommend for other schools in our district.
- Liza T., Parent
"It was fun, hard and very helpful" - my son learned that things aren't always going to be easy and you can't give up.
- Zenzele & Uchenna K., Students
Based on the level of his excitement when he comes home, my son is having the time of his life.
The exposure to technology & expertise of the instructors have opened trains of thought he may not have had. It has truly laid open the paths available. It's the difference between an alley and the Grand Canyon.
