An exciting free three-day robotics camp is being offered to high school students over the winter recess, January 2-4, 2019 by Purdue University Northwest’s (PNW) College of Technology.

Encouraging motivated students in grades 9-12 to pursue an interest in STEM fields (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), students will participate in fun robotics activities including games and competitions that will provide valuable experience in industrial robotic programming and robotic simulations to offer greater insight into STEM disciplines and careers.

“The camp is very ‘hands-on’ and will expose students to many fundamental concepts concerning robotics and industrial robot components, safety and programming,” said PNW Assistant Professor of Mechatronic Engineering Technology Maged Mikhail.

Over the three days the camp will take place from 9 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in Room 134 of the Commercialization and Manufacturing Excellence Center (CMEC) building, 7150 Indianapolis Blvd. on the Hammond Campus.

Registrations must be made online at www.pnw.edu/et and received by Dec. 16.
