Foldable Robotics Day Camp

June 13 @ 9:00 am - June 17 @ 4:00 pm

| $5 – $275

Foldable Robotics Day Camp

https://idealab.asu.edu/events/

* Registration Ends May 31, 2022
* June 13-17, 2022
* $250/student ($275 after 5/13/22 early deadline)
* High School Students 15+
* ASU Polytechnic Campus

In this exciting hands-on, day camp for high schoolers 15+, participants will be introduced to the principles of robot design through origami — the art of paper folding — to prototype, ideate, and get a hands-on sense of the physics of robots.

Participants will learn:

* how to use the biological world as a source of inspiration for designing robots, and how to translate those principles into a set of engineering design goals.
* how to ideate, prototype, and synthesize robotic devices through folded mechanisms, and how force, torque, and motion can be tuned through these structures to make robots move better.
* Coding a microcontroller to generate motion with an RC servo-motor.
* how to take real-world data from a foldable robot and use physical models to improve robot performance

This week-long, hands-on, project-based approach will emphasize problem identification, brainstorming, problem solving, rapid prototyping, teamwork, and communication. The camp will culminate with a final build — that students can program to move through the environment — along with an exposition for parents.

Students will be able to take their development kits home with them at the end of the week. Example parts & materials include:

* Programmable microcontroller
* Breadboard & wire
* RC Servo
* Sensor(s)
* LEDs
* Rechargeable Battery and Charger
* Craft essentials: scissors, stapler, tape, brads, rubber bands
