From driverless cars to the internet of things - robotics, computing and electronics impact every aspect of our lives and their influence will shape our futures. Robotics is about designing and building machines that can be programmed by computer and controlled electronically by humans.

On this five-day course, you will stay at the University of Southampton and interact with industry experts, gaining hands-on experience in computing and electronic engineering. This course is for Year 12 England and Wales, S6 Scotland and Year 13 Northern Ireland.

The course will be delivered by academics from the University of Southampton, one of the UK’s leading robotics centres, and generously sponsored by Amazon. Further support is provided by SourceBots, a not-for-profit organisation which runs robotics challenges for teenagers.
