UNDERWATER ROBOTIC CAMPS RISING 6TH - 9TH GRADES   

What does it take to make robotics work underwater? Underwater Robotic Camps will help campers answer this question. Our Underwater Robotic camps for rising 6th - 9th grades explore the underwater world of remote operated vehicles (ROVs) and the real-world applications of this exciting field.

These 4 - 8 day camps aim to keep you busy both mentally and physically. Teams of campers will work together to design, build, and test a SeaMATE PufferFish or Triggerfish (Advanced Level 2 only) ROV underwater robot. In addition, describe what a robot is and how robots are used to support work that has been traditionally performed by people.

Underwater Robotic camps are offered on Walters State Community College Morristown, Claiborne, Newport Center, Sevierville and Niswonger Campuses.

These camps are supported by the following organizations and industries:

Note:  Youth camps will not meet on June 19, 2024

    Join us for our Level 2 of the underwater robotics camp designed for experieced campers who have successfully completed Level 1, this advanced level will build upon the skills and knowledges gained in Level 1 to provide even more exciting and chanllenging acticities.

    Walters State Community College with support from Nuts, Bolts and Thingamajigs® (NBT)will help experienced campers to advance their robot work this summer.

    An ROV (remote operated vehicle) consists of many systems that are independently constructed and then assembled into a single ROV.  The frame, power, controls propulsion, and buoyancy are the major systems.  This 8-day camp aims to bring your robotics skill to a new level.  Teams of campers will work together to combine all the ROV systems into an integrated vehicle to complete the task at hand.

    Also, this camp will include field trips to various local manufacturing companies and guest speakers.  Note: Lunch will be provided.
