Baxter the robot

FREE Robotics Mini Camps

July 24 @ 10:30 am - July 28 @ 2:00 pm

Free with your paid admission

Edison V2.0 Robot

For the third year in a row, Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology and the Lancaster Science Factory are collaborating to feature summer “Robotics Mini Camps.”  Mini Camps feature Baxter, a state-of-the-art, human-like educational robot, at the Science Café starting June 12 through August 4.

Baxter comes to the Science factory as part of Stevens’ STEM-in-GEAR program , which works to emphasize the importance of technical education and interest youth in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. Baxter, one of two robots currently owned by the college, will be demonstrating processes similar to those used professionally in industry. Four “mini camps” a day will allow up to 15 kids from grades K-8 to interact with the robot. . This initiative would not be possible without the support of The High Companies. Baxter the Robot is current on loan thanks to the generosity of Thaddeus Stevens College
