The Robotics Exploration Program (REP) is an intensive, two-week residential program designed for high achieving post-6th and 7th grade students. REP uses Robotics to introduce students to science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) fields. Students participate in classroom discussions, laboratory experiments, hands-on activities and field experiences. Students work in teams to design, construct, and run robots, requiring critical thinking and problem-solving skills as well as collaboration and friendly competition. REP will culminate with a Robotics Competition, a series of challenges with student-built robots, and Awards Ceremony to which families are invited. Students stay in our dormitories. Evening activities are designed to expand minds and build friendships.
