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 will have the possibility to work with the humanoid robot NAO from home.

You will learn what a humanoid robot is, you will control a NAO graphically from your computer and teach it new things. We will test your program on a real NAO robot at our institute and show you how the robot follows your instructions. Let the NAO run, talk, dance and much more!

Each of you can define own tasks to be programmed on the robot. 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.

The next Science Camp Robotics Online takes place from 26. to 30.10.2020.

It is carried out together with the High Performance Humanoid Technologies Lab (H²T) at the Institute of Anthropomatics and Robotics and organized in cooperation with the ZML - Center for Technology-Assisted Learning and the Schülerakademie Karlsruhe.
