CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas –The College of Science and Engineering at Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi will hold a week-long “STEM Summer Institute: Underwater Robotics” summer educational program from Saturday, June 8, through Saturday, June 14.

The camp will introduce high school students ages 16 to 18 to oceanography research and engineering opportunities, in particular ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) operation, through lectures, exercises, hands-on activities, design and rapid prototyping, field trips, and project competitions.

Students will spend one week on the A&M -Corpus Christi campus building knowledge in underwater robotics interacting with other teens, and learning from experienced university professors.

The camp is sponsored by Time Warner Cable through its Connect A Million Minds initiative. Time Warner Cable has committed $100 million of cash and in-kind resources to their five-year philanthropic Connect a Million Minds initiative, addressing America’s continuing decline in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) by inspiring students to pursue STEM-based educational activities.
