What is INSPIRE 2022?

Have you ever wondered how robots worked? Are you interested in learning about the fundamentals of robot design and programming? Join us for an introductory course on robotics and programming!

The Innovation Summer Program: Introduction to Robotics Engineering – or as we like to call it: INSPIRE – is an immersive and exciting summer program where students entering grades 7-9 spend one week learning the basics of designing and building a focused engineering project. The program is designed to encourage the youth and increase their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM).

This is an introductory level course for students who want to increase their inspiration. This year, students participating in INSPIRE will learn about robotics, sensors, structural design, and programming. They will design, build, and test a robot to complete the assigned mission. They will also present and defend their designs to a panel of robotics experts.

How can I participate?

INSPIRE 2022 is open to students who are in grades 7-9 at any school in Qatar. Participants will be selected on a competitive basis according to applications and essays. But don’t wait to apply — applications must be submitted on or before 23 June.

**Registration is now closed**.

How much does it cost?

Thanks to the generous support from the Qatar National Research Fund (QNRF), participants only need to pay a registration fee of QAR 100. This fee is paid after acceptance, but it is nonrefundable, even if a participant later decides not to participate in the program.

What should I expect?

INSPIRE 2022 is intended to let participants learn the introduction to robotics and programming. Expect lots of hands-on work — and lots of fun! Participants will work in teams to develop their robots and create their own algorithms to solve the challenges. This program is designed for students just getting started in programming and robotics.

Registration is now closed.
