Pre-Engineering Robotics and Java Programming Summer Program

The Pre-Engineering Robotics and Java Programming Summer Program is a special 10-day summer program designed to give middle school or high school students with an interest in science and engineering an opportunity to explore engineering as a career.

Sessions will include hands-on activities on robotics using Lego Mindstorm NXT kits, programming, and problem solving. During the camp, there will be a field trip where participants will observe engineers working on interesting projects, such as space research. There will be visiting engineers to share their experiences with us. St. Mary’s staff will provide information about the University applications and financial aid. Students will engage in campus tours and many fun activities at our university.

Robots! Students experience the thrill of mastering basic concepts in robotics and computer programming, while solving challenging problems.

Students may apply if they are currently enrolled in a middle school or high school in Texas, and have an interest in engineering. Because of the size limit of the camp, please submit your applications at your earliest convenience.

You can view more information and past projects such as robot programming and app development.
