STEM Summer Robotics Institute

Robotics STEM Summer Institute at Palomar College and Open Source Maker Lab (OSML)

Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the STEM Summer 2020 Institutes.

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.

  • Week 1  & 2: Students will build and program a robot at Palomar College
  • Week 3: Students will design and build their robot competition course at the Open Source Maker Lab (OSML) in Vista, CA

The Institute is June 22 – July 9, 2020, at Palomar College and OSML. (June 22-July 2 at Palomar, July 6-9 at OSML)

The robots and their competition course will be seen in-action at a celebration on July 9 2020, 5:30-7:30 pm.

More details coming soon!
