What is it?

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.

The camp is limited to 20 girls and work with the JetBot in teams of two allowing for maximum hands-on experience.

Who is it for?

This camp is for girls in grades 7-10 who want to explore the world of smart robots in an all girls environment and explore coding, technology, artificial intelligence and robots. Some experience with coding is helpful but not strictly required.

What is the cost?

The fee for the three day camp including lunch and snacks is $30. In cases of financial hardship, the fee can be waived.
