Brooklyn private independent school

Robotics Summer Intensive


Program Overview

The Robotics Summer Intensive at Berkeley Carroll is open to students entering grades 7-9 who have a strong interest in robotics or engineering, and are looking for a fun challenge to kick off their summer break. Students will attend morning lessons on various robotics principles such as circuits, Arduino microcontrollers, and C++ Programming. The second half of the day will be entirely devoted to tinkering and testing, as students make their way through an array of progressively more difficult robotics challenges, incorporating the skills and knowledge learned from lessons.

The entirety of the camp will take place in Berkeley Carroll’s brand new, state-of-the-art Beta Lab (with some lessons possibly moving outdoors), and be guided by the Lab’s Engineer-in-Residence, Ryan Byrne. The structure of the course will be as follows:
