Registration is now open for 2011 ROBO Camp, a program developed by Auburn University’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.
Spring ROBO Camp will be held from 9:45 a.m. to 1:45 p.m. for five Saturdays, beginning Jan. 22 and ending Feb. 26. The cost of classes is $170 and registration is limited.

Campers will learn concepts of robotics and computer programming through platforms such as Carnegie Mellon University Alice Programming System, Microsoft Kodu programming environment, Lego Mindstorms and Robotics Invention System, Lego Mindstorms NXT and Lego Tetrix robots. Each student will receive a graduation gift from ROBO Camp partners Pearson Publishing Company and Microsoft. Textbooks, headphones and flash drives will be provided for use in camp labs. Scholarships are available for female campers and students with disabilities from Pearson Publishing Company.
