Interested in robots? Programming? Sign up for the bIrobot Summer Robtics Camp. Design and build a robot to meet challenges in a game revealed at the start of camp. Team up with others and compete as an alliance against other teams to see who can score the most points. You’ll build and program a robot the first day of camp and then build on those skills to complete a week-long version of a FIRST FRC season. The grand finale will be a competition among the teams, to find the best robot. But everyone will win with a great experience. Your mentors will be the bIrobot FIRST FRC team, veterans of three FRC seasons, along with their coach, who teaches programming and robotics at BICS. No prior programming or robotics experience is required, but those with experience will still find plenty to challenge them.

Class meets from 8:30 to 12:30 Monday through Thursday and 8:30 to 3:00 on Friday.  Our competition will begin at 2:00 on Friday after a traditional bIrobot Pizza Party for campers (so pack a lunch Friday if you don’t like pizza).  Summer residents and vacation visitors are welcome.  You need not be a student at BICS to attend. There is a $35 activity fee.
