Learn Mechanical Design, Practical Electronics, and Microcontroller Programming
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.
Sponsorship Opportunities are available for Summer 2022.

The students will learn and practice Engineering Design, Practical Electronics, and
Microcontroller Programming with the instructors and be given the opportunity to virtually
work in a team on additional projects and assignments.
Students and parents must follow the application process online. Student applications
will be reviewed and approved on a rolling basis. The application link will be opened

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.

This was an amazing camp, he learned so much in such a short time! He loved it so much and made some great
- 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.
