About the Camp:
Underwater Robotics is a week-long residential summer program for talented high school students (ages 16-18) who are interested in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics fields. This program will introduce participants to exciting engineering opportunities, in particular ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) operation, through lectures, exercises, hands-on activities, design and rapid prototyping, field trips and project competition. Students who participate in this program will spend one week on the campus of Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi building knowledge in underwater robotics, interacting with other talented teens, and learning from experienced university professors.
There is a $35 non-refundable application fee. The cost of the camp is $500. Scholarships may be available for participants who express need based on merit or financial need.
Please contact Mayra Alvarado by e-mail at Mayra.Alvarado@tamucc.edu or by phone at 361-825-6025 to find out what are the scholarship application requirements.
