    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.

    Temple Pre-College Summer Institutes are non-credit academic pre-college programs for students going into 10th - 12th grades. You'll experience the academics and culture of Temple University by choosing one full day, non-credit workshop per two-week session that focuses deeply on one topic.

    Topics to be covered in the Summer Robotics Institute are:

    • Sensors, motors, microcontrollers, and electrical components
    • Building an autonomous mobile robot
    • Visual programming with Makecode
    • Object oriented programming with python
    • Programming robot to perform obstacle avoidance, lane line following, and more
    • Microbit microcontrollers and resources to extend your knowledge

    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.
