Camp overview

STEM-Tronics is an educational platform developed to introduce state-of-the-art technologies to a new generation of students. The goal is to expose students, at an early stage of their educational pathways, to the Engineering field by interacting with different types of electrical and mechanical modules that can be connected together and build unique projects related to Mechatronics, Automation, and Robotics. Students learn basic Engineering and modularity concepts and get to practice by having hands-on different activities. For instance, students connect different modules to design wearable systems in the form of LED clothing, sound reactive systems, or music devices, as well as to build their own robots, fire/car alarm systems, wireless communication networks, GPS tracker for their pets, etc. They learn to assemble each of the modules and make their own creation work!
