May 09, 2013

Florida Poly is partnering with the Robotics Institute and Center for Urology at Winter Haven Hospital and All Saints Academy to offer a four-week summer camp that gives high school students the opportunity to gain hands-on experience with robotics. The camp begins June 3.

The innovative program named MERIT (Medical Engineering and Robotics Innovation for Tomorrow) teaches the future generation, about the future of medical technology.

During the session, students will learn about medical imaging, radiation, pharmacotherapy, and surgical robotics from medical doctors from the Center. Additionally, they will observe procedures using the latest medical surgical equipment including the DaVinci robotic platform.

As part of the program, students will receive their own small robot that can be operated by a smartphone. They will use their personal robot to give a presentation at their graduation at the end of the program.
