Ages 14 - 19

Designed for young visual artists, hobbyists, builders and makers as well as students interested in computer sciences, programming and engineering.  Expressive Robotics is a two-week middle/high school aged summer intensive focused on the development of robotic behaviors through programming and design.  Originally funded by a grant from the Nicholas Endowment, the core of the camp is interdisciplinary based on a newly developed STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) curriculum designed specifically for this camp by UC Irvine faculty, students and staff.  Students will experience programming and code through exercises in body movement, flow charts, pseudo code creation, and more.  Emphasis on utilizing creative thinking and artistic practice while developing their projects will be conveyed throughout the camp.  Students will learn RobotC programming language using VEX Robotics Design System, and will design and build robots with a DIY approach using various materials and tools to complete their projects.  Programming and Robotics experience is NOT required.
