Expressive Robotics: Arts+STEM camp at UC Irvine for teen girls and boys

Expressive Robotics is a two week middle/high school summer camp focused on the development of robotic behaviors through programming and design, in a collaborative team setting. With a new approach to robotics, the camp was designed for visual artists, DIY hobbyists and young makers, and students interested in computer sciences, programming and engineering. The core of the camp is interdisciplinary and is based on the principles of STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math) curriculum. Students will experience programming and code through exercises in body movement, flow charts, pseudo code creation, and more. Emphasis on stimulating innovation through imaginative thinking and artistic practice will be conveyed throughout the camp. Programming and Robotics experience is NOT required. Full and partial scholarships available - go to http://beallcenter.uci.edu/ for details.
