A Hillsborough all-girls summer camp — with robots

A Hillsborough all-girls summer camp — with robots:

  • It is part of a larger robotics camp hosted by the Florida Advanced Technological Education Center.
  • The center uses the camp as a way to encourage young girls to consider careers in robotics, engineering and manufacturing.
  • At the start of the camp, about five of the girls were interested in a robotics-related field, said Simpson.
  • The robots need to make five turns, pick up a small Lego piece and then get back into the finish line.
  • The girls upload commands from a laptop program to a small, $350 processing unit on the robot’s back.
