I didn't spend my entire summer in camps or on vacation, but there's one thing which I'll always remember to. It was a robotics camp in Budapest.
It's organised by Péter Pázmány Catholic University stated in the 8th district on Práter street. This summer I've been there for the 2nd time. The main reason that this camp is organised now regularly to improve youngsters talent.
This year (2012), it was organised in late summer, on the 6-10th of August. There were people who also went there from our school. But there we could see, that only some of the old members have been replaced this year. Still, I met some guys from Kecskemét and from Gödöllő. On the first day, we've been divided into 4 groups. The first two groups have been programming NXT Robots, the 3rd group has spent the camp in the Robotics Lab and the 4th group, which I joined, was drawing with Inventor which is 3D mechanical solid modeling design software for creating 3D digital prototypes used in the design, visualization and simulation of products.
In those 5 days, we had presentations about robotics and automatization, and of course we were drawing in the group whom I joined. I think it was great to join this camp again, however in the beginning I was afraid that we're going to see the same labors and presentations we saw last summer. I also met students from the university through those social games we played. On the first few days, we hated these social games because they weren't funny at all.
All in all, I enjoyed the camp, the accomodation was also better than last year. I wish I can attend to this camp next summer too!
