Our most recent educational endeavour aims to create a new kind of robotic exploration class for high school juniors. Called Robotic Autonomy, this fully accredited summer course in robotics enables enthusiastic students to build robots using special fast-build kits that we have designed, complete with the CMUcam vision system, and thereafter program the robot to enable more and more intelligent rover missions in the classroom and home environments. At the conclusion of the course, students take the robots home and are thus able to continue exploring robotics and rover science throughout the school year.
