HT Science and Math Faculty to Host a Robotics Camp

(AUSTIN, Texas) 5.17.13 — Huston-Tillotson University’s science and mathematics faculty are hosting a week-long robotics summer day camp for high school girls, scheduled July 29-Aug 2, 2013. The Environmental Rescue Robotics Camp is designed to help engage 9th-12th grade girls in science and mathematics applications. Teams of campers will participate in a variety of robotics applications such as planning, building, and testing a “waterbot” that can travel on the surface of the water, dive, and maneuver while submerged. The camp will also include experiments on invasive species and environmental clean-up. 

Huston-Tillotson University is Austin’s oldest institution of higher education, offering Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in 19 fields of study.

Campers who complete the program will receive $2,000 toward HT tuition, if they later enroll at the University. For more information, contact Lauren Ortega at 512.505.3111 or
