The Engineering New Mexico Resource Network, New Mexico State University College of Engineering, will host a beginning robotics camp in Albuquerque from June 17-19 for students ages 10 and older.

This three-day camp is an introduction to robotics using radio-controlled components and other supplies that you might find in your own garage. Campers will utilize the engineering design process as they build a robot with teammates and the robot will be used in a competition at the end of camp. The camp is a great way to prepare for the BEST (Boosting Engineering Science and Technology) robotics competition sponsored by the NMSU College of Engineering. In addition to building a robot for competition, students will work in teams, write an engineering manual, learn basic tool skills and be exposed to a variety of engineering technologies.

Shelly Gruenig, coach of the award-winning Rio Rancho Robo Runners, coordinates the camp.

The camp will be held at Netherwood Park Church of Christ, 5101 Indian School Road NE from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, June 17-18, and from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Wednesday, June 19. The cost is $50.
