What is BlueStamp Engineering?
BlueStamp Engineering is a six-week, hands-on summer program where high school students build technology projects they’re passionate about. Each student selects their own projects and completes the program with 2 projects (which they keep). They also develop their own personal online portfolio that details their journey with videos, technical descriptions of their work, milestones, and blog postings.This personal portfolio can then be shared with colleges and prospective employers.
What projects do BlueStamp students build?
In past summers, students created omnidirectional robots, infinity mirror tables, CNC drawing machines, 3D printed robotic hands, vacuum robots, voice controlled robots, automated smart homes, computer vision ball tracking robots and many more.
