It is hands-down the most powerful language to be able to wield in the robotics world and is a highly marketable language in the engineering fields. It is older and more complicated (less compiled) than newer languages such as python or javascript. If you know C++, the others will come easily by comparison. In this camp, you will start by learning the very basics of C++ coding before moving on to sophisticated areas including PID and use of sensors. We’ll finish the week with a tournament where the best autonomous robot will be crowned champion. 
    No prior experience necessary! We’ll provide the robot (or bring your own!) and all materials. This cost of this camp is $360.
