Camp 2 - July 7 - 14, 2013 - FULL
The University of North Dakota's International Aerospace Camp is a full week of aviation adventure! This "college seminar" is similar to attending a week of actual college. Additionally, what makes this seminar unique is the amount of flight training each student receives. We are very interested in students who truly want to experience collegiate aviation. Your counselors, flight instructors and professors are leaders in aerospace education. You'll start with the basics of flying, experience new and exciting technology and explore career opportunities in flight, air traffic control, aviation management, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS).

Each camper will use a Lego® Mindstorm™ NXT robot kit to build a computer controlled robot. The campers will learn to program solutions to teach the robot to react to its environment. Camps will learn how to control the robot to avoid obstacles, find, pick up and carry objects, and even compete in different competitions.
Processing is a program environment based upon Java that allows the camper to create images, animations, and interactive programs. Processing was designed to make it easy to develop visually-oriented applications while learning the fundamentals of text-based computer programming. Students will learn to use the keyboard and mouse to make their applications interact with the user.
