Robotics and Electronics Summer Camp Information

Dates: June 25 -- June 28, 2018, 8:00am - 5:00pm.

Residential Camp Information

We are currently working with the UHV residential and student life office to allow for all camp students to stay at the Jaguar Hall for the duration of the camp. Applicants are given the option of choosing to stay at the Jaguar Hall in the application form. To cover for the lodging and meal expenses during the camp week, a residential scholarship is available for upto 6 students who do not live in Victoria. The summer camp will be free of charge to the candidates who recieve the scholarship or do not stay at the dorm.


We use LEGO NXT EV 3.0 robotics kits for the robotics portion of the summer camp. Students will learn how to program autonomous robots using Labview and Artificial Intelligence Programming.


The students will learn how to build electronics circuits and test them.


The students will learn how to build simulation environments and test their object in a virtual setting.

Students have the option of staying at the UHV dormitory for the duration of the camp.
