* APPLICATION FOR SUMMER 2020 COMING SOON *

 

The two-week Robotics Camp, sponsored by MTRC, is a STEM based program that offers hands-on experiential learning to twenty-four middle school to high school students from school districts throughout Nassau and Suffolk county (students must have completed 5th grade). The students learn and practice Engineering Design, Practical Electronics, and Microcontroller Programming while working collaboratively in a team to design, build, and program an autonomous and Bluetooth controlled robot. Students and parents must follow the application process online. Student applications will be reviewed and the first twenty-four that fulfill the requirements will be awarded full tuition to the program. In addition to the scholarship each student will receive a SnappyXO robotics kit to take home at the conclusion of the camp.

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.- Ronald K., Parent
