RoboCamp

RoboCamp @ RIT is our week-long day camp that lets students design, build, and program robots. This camp is enriched with mini-projects and week-long goals that promote team-work and creativity. Along with the mini-projects, instructors teach the students some of the fundamental aspects of robotics and programming.

We are currently offering three age/skill levels for RoboCamp please read below to know which level is best for your student.
