ORU College Preparatory Institute to Build Underwater Robot

RobotOral Roberts University will be kicking off the second annual College Preparatory Institute (CPI) by offering a new robotics course as one of 16 available majors. CPI will be held May 19-23, 2014 and engage high school students from the U.S. and beyond in a week of accelerated classes taught in an interactive workshop-style environment.

During CPI, students may choose two non-credit “majors” including the new robotics class, which will incorporate basic math and science skills as students work together to build an underwater robot. Students will then get the chance to test drive the newly built robot in the aerobics center pool on ORU’s campus.

In addition to robotics, majors include Biology, Christian Worldview, Creative Writing, Graphic Design, Interactive Broadcasting, Law, Government and International Relations, Leadership and Ministry in a Facebook, Fast Food World, Marketing, Scientific Research and Methods, Sports Management, the Science of Art, and Worship and Artistic Expression.

CPI students will also gain a realistic first glance into college life as well as a chance to experience ORU’s world renowned whole person education. Each day, students attending the residential camp will participate in group activities and special events such as athletic competitions, games and group meetings.

Each CPI major will conclude with a culminating project. The experience gives students the opportunity to preview various areas of study and career pathways.
