Waterbotics 2019

The South Texas College (STC) Engineering Program in partnership with City of McAllen Public Utility (MPU) held a two week long robotics camp between July 8 and July 19 using a curriculum entitled “Waterbotics”. The camp was geared towards youth of ages 12 to 17. There were 20 kids that participated in each week long camp. These participants were selected amongst many applicants via a competitive selection process.The Waterbotics program goes beyond teaching kids about the basics of robotics such as programming, mechanical design and controls. It also emphasizes teamwork, decision making via the engineering design process, and introduces the participants to engineering as a career.
