News Flash! 2017 Robotics & Engineering Summer Camps

FLATE is offering several robotics and engineering camps for middle and high school students this summer. The five day camps are a challenging, but fun way for students to explore and learn about robotics and STEM in a high-tech manufacturing context. Each camp presents students with hands-on activities that are geared to develop real-world skills in programming, learning about 3D modeling and printing, and how each of these concepts are applied in everyday manufacturing operations.

Local camps in the Tampa Bay area will be held at the Engineering Tech Labs and FLATE offices at Hillsborough Community College in Brandon. Cost for the intro and intermediate camp is $175 per week; cost for the high school engineering and technology camp is $200 a week.

The Suncoast Credit Union Foundation is once again partnering with FLATE to provide scholarships for girls fromPresentation1 low-income families to attend the any of the robotics camps. Thanks to a grant from Hillsborough County, scholarships are also available for students interested in enrolling in the high school camp. Students from low income families, and/or those participating in a free and reduced lunch program are eligible to apply for the high school camp scholarship. A camp T-shirt, company tour, supplies and curriculum will be provided for all students and is included in the registration fee. More information on the high school camps, applications and scholarship are posted online on the FLATE Camps website.

This year as in last year, FLATE will once again work closely with Hillsborough Community College to provide before and after care for campers who are interested in this option. FLATE is also working with HCC and Hillsborough County School District to provide free breakfast options for campers. More details for signing up for either/or option will be posted on the FLATE Camp website, so stay tuned. Interested in hosting your own Lego Mindstorm camp this summer? FLATE has published and posted its robot camp curriculum and its newly updated EV3 robotics camp guide.
