Lipscomb University and Nissan Engineering and Robotics Camps
For every kid who just can’t resist dismantling the toaster, the Lipscomb University/Nissan BisonBot Robotic Summer Camps will be the highlight of their summer. All camps will be held in the new Hughes Center engineering facility on the Lipscomb campus.
Applications are due by February 28, 2017. Those who have been selected will be notified by April 15, 2017.
Advanced BisonBot Robotics Camp
Designed for students with some previous robot experience
Ages: 12 and older (completed 6th grade)
Cost: $500 (snacks and lunch included)
Dates: July 10 - 14, 2017
Time: 9:00 am - 3:00 pm
This camp is for students age 12 and above (completed 6th grade) with some robot experience (previous attendance in a robotics camp, participation on a robotics team, etc.) and will extend their knowledge in mechanical and electrical principles, wireless communication, and will provide them with opportunities to learn and apply various robot design and construction techniques. Advanced camp concludes with a reception and head-to-head robot competition involving robots of the camper’s own design and construction. The reception and competition is open to family and friends.
Academic Scholarships and Financial Aid
Regardless of the selected camp, all applicants will be considered for academic scholarships. Camp applications must be accompanied by at least one letter of recommendation (non-relative) and a copy of the student’s most recently completed semester grades in math and science. Additionally, financial aid will be available to qualified students (to be considered for financial aid, additional materials are required—see the application for details). No before- or after-camp care will be available. Early application is strongly encouraged as acceptances are granted to qualified applicants on a first-come, first-served basis, and camps fill quickly.
