Programa de verano - estudiantes de intermedia y superior (7th -12th)

Summer Institute of Robotics (SIR) for Middle and High School Students is a 2 week 7hrs/day summer program in which students learn team work, research, programming and building skills through the use of robotics. Students are trained on the fields of programming and construction of robots to accomplish different tasks, these robots are based on VEX Robotics platform, this is a great system for young students to learn basic robotic concepts and apply them for a positive purpose. At the culmination of the program a small competition is held for the students to prove their new skills and knowledge on robotics.  After completing the SIR program students can continue learning with our STEM Academy.
