Students enrolled in the Institute will engage in the basic concepts of engineering design and computer science through hands-on activities and projects. Working in teams, students will build, test, and program small robots featuring Lego Mindstorms NXT Technology and the C Programming Language. Students will use their robots to compete for precision and accuracy in an arena setting. Upon completion of the Institute, participants will receive a $500 stipend.
