Summer FTC Robot Construction Boot Camp @ The Grauer School as part of their Week-Long Enrichment Programs
Join us for an exciting week of intensive FIRST Tech Challenge (FTC) Robot Construction! This camp is for High School students from any school in the San Diego County area entering 9th through 12th grades in the fall. 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. The FTC robots can be up to 18" in length, and they will be built using the following parts: Extruded Aluminum Frames, REV Expansion Hub Robot Controllers, Cell Phone, and REV motors with encoders.
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 on a robotics team with confidence.
This cost for this camp is $250 with an additional Materials Fee of $60, for a total of $310 per student. This camp has a maximum of 15 students, so sign up for one of the camp sessions now at www.grauerschool.com/summer to reserve your spot!
