Science Camp Robotics

Robots are true all-rounders: They explore foreign planets, play chess or soccer and help us humans in the household and at work. In our Science Camp "Robotics", you will learn how robots are built and how they work. You will have the opportunity to work with the humanoid robot Nao and gain insights into current research topics in robotics.

The robot Nao has big eyes, broad shoulders and movable arms and legs - it is modeled on humans. In small groups, you'll learn what makes a humanoid robot and how to program it. Let the Nao walk, talk, dance and much more! During the Science Camp week, you will learn to graphically program the Nao humanoid robot. At the end of the week you will also get an insight into the text-based programming language Python.

The program of the Science Camp also includes a guided tour of the institute and lunch in the KIT cafeteria.
