Robot C for Girls

Description

RobotC for Girls is a one-week, day program for students who will complete grades 8 – 12 in June 2016.

The camp introduces students to computer programming in a fun and supportive environment. The camp is limited to 20 students.

RobotC for Girls campers will program Lego Mindstorm robots using RobotC programming language. This is a text based program language similar to C++. The camp introduces students to text-based programming including syntax, variables, functions, behaviors and loops.

The camp is planned and taught by University of Michigan faculty, staff and students. In addition to hands-on activities, campers will participate in fun group competitions, will tour dynamic UM labs, Google, and the UM campus and will talk with UM students in science and engineering majors.

Our campers are chaperoned by WISE camp staff at all times.

RobotC for Girls is sponsored by the University of Michigan, Women in Science and Engineering (WISE) Program and by Google.
