Registration is now open for fall 2009 ROBO Camp, a program developed by Auburn's Department of Computer Science and Software Engineering to reinforce computer literacy to children ages 10-18, while introducing advanced concepts and hands-on applications of computer programming and robotics.

ROBO Camp will be held in 2205 Shelby Center from 10 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. for six Saturdays: Oct. 3, 10, 24 and 31 and Nov. 14 and 21. The cost for the classes is $150 and registration is limited.

Carnegie Mellon University's Alice Programming System, Microsoft Kodu programming environment, Lego Mindstorms and Robotics Invention System, Lego Mindstorms NXT, and Lego Tetrix robots will be used to teach concepts of robotics and computer programming.
