Robotics & Space Exploration

Robotics & Space Exploration
Just over 50 years ago this year, humans first walked on the surface of the moon. It has been a while since the last lunar landing, but there is growing interest both in returning to the moon as well as colonizing Mars. Come learn about the science of planetary exploration through robotics by designing and building robots for a Mars or lunar mission.

This course is oriented primarily towards middle school and early high school students.

July 13-17, 9:00 a.m.-3:30 p.m.
Open to middle students from any Colorado school
