Mechatronic Youth Camp June 27 – June 30 (3 days) Grades 9th – 12th

Mechatronic Youth Camp June 27 – June 30 (3 days) Grades 9th – 12th

  • Introduction to Mechatronics
  • 3-day course Tue-Thur
  • Hands-on with real equipment
  • June 27-June 30  9th-12th grade students and teachers
  • Teachers/Adult $100 plus $25 for CEU certificate from MSU (application in process)
  • Students $50

Teachers/Adults are expected to follow-up with your students.  STEM Advancement Inc (dba Mississippi Robotics) will also offer to attendees one year of free support as you follow-up with your students.  The camp is limited to 7 Teachers/Adults and a maximum of 3 students each.  This Camp will offer 2.4 CEU’s for teacher at an additional $25, payable after the class.  If you are interested then I need you to register and pay by June 20th .

“Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering training.”  I guess I could say mechatronics is the end result of STEM teaching.  Factory and home automation is mechatronics. The Nissan vehicle assembly plant is centered around mechatronics.  For Mississippi, Mechatronics is a very big deal.  It’s here now, we just don’t know it.

The course description is below.

Intro to Mechatronics:

Automation technology is one of the most important growth technologies in the world. Automated systems are to be found in virtually every area of life today. Students will use Fluid Sim software to design, program and run industrial circuits in mechatronic applications. They will then use 1 of 3 meclab hardware applications to test their software design. Students will gain a knowledge and understanding of each meclab station-sorting, stacking and conveyor. As the capstone they will design a program to run and control 2 stations together.
