Our middle school computer science and robotics program is going online!
Join the fun and learn about programming, robots and drones from UC Merced Computer Science and Engineering students.
NexTech is an introduction to computer science and robotics program
for middle schooler students. The introductory course covers programming
and coding, web design and robotics. No prior experience is needed.
By joining the google classroom, students interact with each other and two UC Merced students to practice coding and programming online robots. Students will learn about principles of engineering design, problem solving and critical thinking. They will explore robotics, including teleoperated and autonomous movement, sensor integration, and coding optimization to create environment-aware robots.
