FTC Robot Construction Boot Camp
Join us for an exciting week of intensive FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robot Construction! This camp is for High School students entering 9th through 12th grades in the fall, and the camp is open to Grauer students and students from other schools. Students are welcome at all knowledge levels, whether you’re just learning about robotics, or if you already have some experience on an FTC Robotics team and want to learn more.
During this weeklong Robotics Boot Camp, students will build a fully functional robot using FTC-approved parts and programming. Each student will learn all aspects of hardware and software design that goes into building an FTC robot. Students will work in small teams to design, build, and program an FTC robot from the ground up.
FTC robots can be up to 18" in length. The robots will be built using the following parts:
This Boot Camp program is designed to provide a comprehensive overview so students will have a working knowledge of each aspect of the FTC Robotics program. This will give them a big head start if they’re interested in joining an FTC team or similar robotics program at their school during the school year, because they'll be able to step in and take on any of the roles in a robotics team with confidence.
This cost for this camp is $245 with an additional Materials Fee of $30, for a total of $275 per student. This camp has a maximum of 12 students, so sign up quickly to reserve your spot!
First Session: (June 25 – 29, Daily 9-12)
