Future Robotics: Code & Command

Summer Camp taught with the Phase Dock desktop robotic arm. Unlock the secrets of robotics through an engaging session for rising 6th to 8th-grade students, diving deep into robotics concepts, language, and principles. In this session, students will have the chance to explore mechatronics, electronics, and coding while taking command of a 3-degree-of-freedom robotic arm. Participants will learn to connect, control, and program the robotic arm to a microcontroller to complete different challenges and tasks, learning along the way why robotics is such an important STEM concept. All programming will take place at The Science House on NC State’s Centennial Campus.

Phase Dock LIVE with Jonathan Barket and Biscuit the robot dog

Jonathan is part of a team that finds innovative ways to use technology to help companies prepare for, respond to and recover from their worst day. His team has used everything from weather balloons to Boston Dynamics' Spot to find new ways to collect scientific data and provide a broader perspective in situations that are unsafe for human workers.
