    Learn how to design and build programmable mobile robots, and then compete in maze mapping competitions with other high school students in the Delaware Valley. You will get a great introduction to a college program in electrical and computer engineering. This program is partially funded by NASA and the Pennsylvania Space Grant.

    Topics to be covered are:

    Electrical components: Resistance, capacitance and electromagnetic induction coil.

    Electronic components and integrated circuits: Diodes, transistors, operational amplifiers and timer circuits.

    C-language programmable Arduino microcontrollers, photoresistors, infrared sensors and ultrasonic transmitters.

    Design, construction of autonomous mobile robots

    Temple professors, graduate and undergraduate students will instruct you every step of the way in the state-of-the-art electronics laboratory. There's no homework, but you will be challenged to learn about autonomous programmable robots and the different areas of electrical and computer engineering.
