Starting July 28th, I’ll be teaching a week-long robotics course for teenagers at Stanford University using LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT. The course, “Hands-On Robotics for Teens,” is one of many technology courses being offered this summer by DMA (Digital Media Academy), a nationally-recognized organization that runs summer computer camps at campuses across the nation. I’ve written a course description and put together a five-day course outline, and DMA has posted the information to their website.
The entire course will be “NXT-based.” We’ll be using the educational version of the NXT set and also the Education Resource Set. And what’s the highlight of the course? I think it will be the robotic sumo competition!
The course is for teenagers (ages 13-19), and if you’re interested in signing up for the course (or have a teen who may be interested), you can find out more about registration at the DMA website.
I’m definitely excited. After all, what’s a summer without a robotic sumo competition?
