From self-driving cars to devices we can talk to, machine learning and artificial intelligence are revolutionizing our daily lives. In this three day camp, we will cover machine learning, coding in Python and programming our smart JetBot robot, and teach it to avoid obstacles and follow objects or roads. This camp is for raising 7-10th grade girls.

Environment Monitoring Camp ⭐⭐

July 18-21, 2022 - 4-7 pm EDT - virtual - Fee $50 (for materials)

Application deadline June 26, 2022


In this camp the girls will be using a microcontroller and environmental sensors for indoor monitoring. They will measure temperature, humidity, and air quality. It's great for keeping tabs on what's going on in rooms in your house, office, or elsewhere. They will learn to push the data to the Adafruit Internet of Things cloud allowing us to view the data remotely from anywhere. It is going to be cool.
