We will be doing a 4 day summer camp from August 7th through August 10th. We will be discussing planetary exploration and how we use aerial surveillance to map out planets then program robots to then drive a course for exploration on distant planets. We will be using Ozobots, Lego Mindstorm Kits, and Blue Heron Drones with cameras
My students will all be students who are underrepresented within the STEM fields, so it will be all young women and students of color. I'd love for the professional a person of color, preferably Hispanic or pacific islander as that will be the majority of my students, to come and talk to my students about their path to be in that profession and the struggles they had and how they overcame them.
Be a guest speaker, bring in hands on materials, maybe help with a robotics challenge
