logo_REAL_middle-school_webAre you a middle school girl (or going into middle school next year) and interested in science and math? Sign up for a fun summer robotics opportunity that will involve underwater robotics challenges!

The Washington County Museum is hosting a week-long camp that will follow the National Science Foundations’ Waterbotics lesson plans to build a Lego robot and compete in challenges. But not just any challenges—underwater challenges, both on the surface of the water and vertical motion in an eight foot diameter pool!

Snacks will be provided. Girls will need to bring a lunch each day of the camp.

Why Do Underwater Robotics?

As recent headlines have shown, engineers are increasingly called upon to deal with complex, non-traditional and previously unforeseen challenges.

The underwater environment of the WaterBotics program will give you a sense of both the known and unknown challenges that real engineers face every day.

  • Learn new thinking skills
  • Learn programming skills 
  • Learn engineering design skills 
  • Learn teamwork techniques

You will discover technical talents you didn’t know you had!
