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. The 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, the multinational technology company that focuses on e-commerce, cloud computing, online advertising, digital streaming, and artificial intelligence. Further support is provided by SourceBots, a not-for-profit organisation which runs robotics challenges for teenagers.

’I loved the chance to meet likeminded people and build an amazing robot. I haven’t had the opportunity to work with electronics before so it has been a brilliant chance to learn more about it and so cool to be able to see a finished result at the end.’ Computing, Electronics and Robotics Course Student 2022
