Summer robotics courses in Lady Margaret Hall Summer School
The Summer Course of Robotics (Introduction to Robotics)
- Age of students: 13-15 years
- Dates: 1-28 July.
Robotics is one of the most exciting and dynamic branches of science: all new robots and technical models are developed and implemented to solve a variety of tasks for humans. The summer course will help children to master the basic principles of developing and creating robots - and to create their own model!
The two-week course begins with a theoretical study of the basics of the exact sciences, mechanics and engineering - they will ultimately allow you to create a working, functional robot. Special programs and programming languages (Raspberry Pi, Python) will help you to customize the technique for various actions: movement and turns, linear tracking, circumvention or overcoming obstacles, wheel control, external sensors.
If the student wishes, the program can be combined with a general computer science course (Introduction to Computer Science) and extended to 4 weeks. Classes include up to 10 people each, the intensity of the lessons starts from 20 hours weekly + minimum 2 themed tours + master classes, lectures and seminars with invited specialists and speakers, as well as 3 large competition workshops. Teachers practice an individual approach and, if necessary, can quickly adjust the educational course in order to increase its effectiveness for each student. At the end of the course, students will also receive a solemn ceremony of awarding, handing out personal certificates indicating personal achievements and successes.
