MIT's and Lincoln Labs's BeaverWorks Summer Institute (BWSI) gathers a group of about 100-150 ambitious high-school students to participate in technically compelling four-week courses. Two of those courses involve the autonomous robot known as RACECAR Begun by HMC Alum Andrew Fishberg '16, the program is now led by Eyassu Shimelis '18 and Matthew Calligaro '20. Eyassu and Matthew will oversee the RACECAR courses this summer. They are seeking 3-5 students interested in helping develop, refine, run, and debrief those courses. Because BWSI in summer 2021 will be remote, the physical RACECAR robots will be replaced by simulation software and a wide-ranging robot-programming curriculum.
If you like the idea of working in a team that guides energetic students in robot-programming (and continues to improve and expand the existing courses), this project will be a good fit!
