UK AquaBots Summer Camp
Girls in grades 7-11 are invited to make a splash in science while learning about underwater robotics at a special one-week “Aquabots Camp,” to be held at the University of Kentucky this summer. Over five days, participants will work together in teams of four to design, build and program the “ultimate underwater vessel” using the Lego Mindstorm system, while exploring real-world challenges in underwater exploration. The camp will give the girls an opportunity to exercise their creative and computer skills and to discover how robotics are changing the world we live in. No swimming skills are required. The camp will meet from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. from July 29 through August 2, 2013. Participation is limited to 20 girls, and participants must be available for the full five days. All girls entering grades 7-11 in Fall 2013 are welcome to apply. There is a $200 workshop fee; scholarships are available for students requiring financial assistance. For registration information, contact Sue Scheff at firstname.lastname@example.org or call (859) 257-2614. Registration forms are also available online at http://www.kygirlsstem.com. The Aquabots Camp is a project of the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Girls STEM Collaborative Project, with support from the National Girls Collaborative Project (NGCP), 4-H Club and Girl Scouts.
