Summer Enrichment Camps for High School Students

The Florida International University (FIU) Robotics and Fabrication lab, offers immersive summer camps that encourage tech innovation learning for young students. Camps focused on Robotics and Advanced Fabrication, Small Robotics, Digital Design, and Immersive Visualization, are offered at the lab. We offer a flexible time structure, meaning that camps can range from as little as a week to a summer-long period, depending on the client’s preference. Our goal is to expose young minds to the latest and upcoming technology, and to the opportunities that are offered in STEM fields.

Attendees will learn how to create real time visualization tools such as desktop PC 2D and 3D computer games. Attendees learn how to use 3D modeling software Rhinoceros, and real-time visualization software Unreal Engine to create immersive environments.The workshop will be organized as follows:
