Junior Camp – Robotics and multi-activites, 13 to 18 years old
Embark on an exhilarating journey into the world of robotics and artificial intelligence with our 'Robotics and AI' course in the mornings and participate in a variety of exciting multi-activities and outdoor adventures with other campers in the afternoon.
Designed for young enthusiasts, this programme offers a hands-on experience with Thymio robots, a gateway to understanding the intricate world of robotics.
Students will delve into the realm of programming, exploring both the possibilities and limitations inherent in working with robots. The course curriculum is structured to provide a comprehensive understanding of robot operation, including: sensor utilisation, line-following techniques, and navigating through complex obstacle courses.
As a culmination of their learning, participants will engage in a thrilling line-following race, applying their acquired skills in a dynamic environment.
This course not only imparts technical knowledge but also fosters critical thinking, problem-solving, and collaborative skills, setting the stage for future innovators and technologists.
