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 four 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.  

Who is it for?

This camp is for raising 7-10th grade  girls 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 four day camp including lunch and snacks is $50. In cases of financial hardship, the fee can be waived.
