Working in teams, students in ROV camp build ROV’s. Remote Operated Vehicles are underwater robots that are piloted from the surface. Each team will design and build a ROV to complete the assigned underwater mission.
- Dates: June 13-16 @ CTEC
- June 20-23 @ Verde Valley Campus
- Students entering grades 7 - 9
At BotBrain® camp you will use BotBrain® Educational Robots to compete in fun real-world challenges like navigating through a maze or working through a "mine field" to detonate the mines (modified mouse traps serve as the mines). Each day will bring a new challenge, and your team’s robot will have to morph to better adapt and compete.
All campers will also have the opportunity to operate one of the the College's five FANUC LR-Mate industrial robots (top right photo).
Space is limited, so apply today!
