The Alfred University Robotics Engineering Camp is an exciting residential summer program for students entering grades 10-12 who are interested in science and engineering and wish to learn about robotics. The program is based on the VEX Robotics System which offers an great platform for learning about areas rich with career opportunities spanning science, technology, engineering and math. Beyond science and engineering principles, a VEX Robotics project also encourages teamwork, leadership and problem solving among groups. Students experience hands-on learning in small classes, through assembling and programming the VEX Robotics System to perform various functions. Classes are taught by distinguished Alfred University faculty who know how to make learning fun! Daily class sessions cover: an overview of the VEX Robotics System, assembling, programming using EasyC for basic movements, learning how to perform both radio control and autonomous control of the system, programming the VEX Robotics System to go through a simple maze and programming the robots to compete in a classroom football/soccer game.

In the evenings, students have lots of fun participating in a variety of activities including indoor and outdoor games, movies, visits to a lake for picnics and campfires, hikes, social gatherings at the coffee house, a farewell party on the last night, and more. When students are not in class, they are supervised by our wonderful team of Resident Assistants who serve as camp counselors, mentors, positive role models and friends. Housing is provided in secure university residence halls dedicated to summer campers. Delicious, all-you-can-eat, cafeteria-style meals are served in the campus dining hall. The camp fee covers tuition, supervision, materials, room and board from dinner on the first day through lunch on the last day, and recreational activities.

Alfred University is located in the peaceful village of Alfred in western New York State, where summer days are warm and nights are cool and comfortable. Surrounded by rolling hills and beautiful meadows and valleys, this is the perfect place to spend an enjoyable week learning and meeting other students who share your interests.

With our dynamic, engaging, caring faculty and staff; terrific facilities; and lovely surroundings, the AU Robotics Engineering Camp could make this your best summer ever!
