SnappyXO MTRC Robotics Camp

Robotics Camp in Suffolk and Nassau Counties

for 6th-11th graders

July 8-19, 2019 CEWIT Building, Stony Brook University, NY

July 29-August 9, Carle Place High School, Carle Place, NY

Stony Brook University Manufacturing Technology Research Consortium (MTRC) is offering a two-weeks long Robotics camp with a fully paid scholarship to the accepted 6th to 11th grade students.

The first year of this camp was offered in the summer of 2018 at the Composite Prototyping Center of Long Island. This year, it will be offered at the CEWIT Building, Stony Brook University and at the Carle Place High School in Nassau.

This camp is being offered as part of the MTRC's K-12 outreach grant from the Empire State Development (ESD) Council in collaboration with the Center of Excellence in Wireless and Information Technology (CEWIT), and Mechanismic Inc.

We had an overwhelming response to this camp and already have many students in the wait list.

We are not accepting any more applications. Please try again next year.

Please email to be put on our mailing list for future events.
