The Innovation and Science Summer Camp - Robotics Course is for junior and high school students (10-15 years old) will be held 19th - 22nd August 2018 at Achimota Secondary School. 

The annual Innovation and Science Summer Camp, designed to underscore the importance of Innovation, Science, and Technology, will host up to 50 students from regions throughout Ghana. Students will be selected based on their desire to use out-of-the-box thinking to generate new values that will bring about significant changes in society.

During the 4 day residential camp at the Achimota Secondary School, students will receive classroom and field instruction from accredited International English-speaking University lectures and instructors from Norway, UK, Brussels and Ghana with projects designed to enhance their skills and knowledge in a wide variety of programs for examples in coding by designing and constructing their own fun game and program.


The camp will also help students shape and build their innovative skills as they work in teams to develop creative and scientific projects that will be evaluated by instructors during the camp’s final session. The camp will also focus on empowerment as students create and evaluate scientific and technological responses to solve problems. 

The basic requirements for this programme are:

  • Age between 10-15 years
  • Have completed at least 1 science course
  • Current student at “junior high”, "pre-university" or "Senior high school" level.
  • Interest in innovation, studying Science, Technology, Engineering, or Mathematics at university level

Tuition is $269 and includes 3 nights’ lodging in Achimota Secondary School, 3 x meals a day, special events, unlimited Wi-Fi, books and materials. Participants should come with their own laptops.

Robotics 10-15 yrs

During this four day robotics summer course, students will go on a journey which begins with learning the basic theory of robotics, and ends with them being able to control robotic behaviours, including moving, turning, and obstacle avoidance.

Participants will become familiar with Lego Mindstorms Education EV3; however, prior knowledge of Lego Mindstorms Education EV3 is not a pre-requisite.

In addition to the practical element, students will also take time out to analyse the field of robotics as it stands today, which will include a debate on self-driving cars.

Why choose Robotics for 10-15 years?

A robot is a physical device that uses its sensors and code to understand its environment, and in turn produces efficient, robust and flexible actions. This course places emphasis on both the theoretical and practical aspects of robotics, to provide students aged 10 – 15 years with a solid grounding in robotics.

How will Introduction to Robotics help me?

This four day summer course is fast-paced and activity-based. A lot of material will be covered, and students will have plenty of chances to ask questions. Students, under the guidance of their expert facilitator, will learn the fundamentals of robotics - wheeled motion, basic control and outward looking sensors. Each lesson is accompanied by an exercise to help students cement their understanding and visualise it in the real-world. For the full course content, please see the Day-by-Day Schedule below.

Is this course for me?

If you have ever wanted to build and control a robotic car by your programme, then this course is for you. 

Topics covered:

• Setting up and testing the environment (hardware and software)

• Lego Mindstorms Education EV3 programming languages 

• Conditional programming follows, statements and loops

• Assembly of a robotic car, and learning how to control each component

• The ethics of robotics

  • Standard Ticket
