Description for RoboCup Jr June 8-12th (for rising 6th+)
Would you like to create a robot that can win a dance competition? Would you like to create a robot that can search for victims and navigate around obstacles? These are just two of the events at RoboCup Jr. which is an international competition that was held at Georgia Tech in the summer of 2007. In this camp you will build and program LEGO NXT robots for an end of camp competition like the RoboCup Jr competition. For more information on RoboCup Jr see http://rcj.sci.brooklyn.cuny.edu

Would you like to make a movie using robots as the actors and as the camera? Would you like to learn to program special effects like the kind you see in the movies? In this session we will program Paralax robots that have a color camera to make our own movies and learn how to do special effects like chrormakey in the programming language Python. You will learn some of what we teach in our introductory computing courses at Georgia Tech for both majors and non-majors. For more information see http://www.roboteducation.org/
