Science Camp Robotics Online

Immerse yourself in the world of robots!

Robots are true all-rounders: They explore foreign planets, play chess or football and help us humans in the household and at work.

In our Science Camp Robotics Online you have the possibility to work with the humanoid robot NAO from home. You will learn what makes a humanoid robot and will be able to control a NAO graphically from your computer alone or in a small group and teach it new things. Via livestream you can test your program on a real NAO robot in our institute and see how the robot follows your instructions. Let the NAO run, talk, dance and much more! At the end of the week you will also get an insight into the text-based programming language Python.

Each and every one of you can define your own research tasks. You can work individually or in groups. We support you via chat and video throughout the camp and are available daily from 9:00 to 15:00. To keep the camp feeling, we want to start each day together with a "virtual" breakfast.

Computer science - the right course for me?

The answer is yes, if:

- you enjoy solving tricky problems,

- Math doesn't make you back down immediately,

- you are creative and you can "think outside the Box" to find a solution.

That gets your interest? Then visit the website of the Faculty of Computer Science!
