Hi CodeRanch!

I’m Melissa Thane, a representative from NATCAR at UC Davis!

NATCAR is an engineering educational program in robotics. This year, our High School Division is providing an online curriculum for high school students in California.  Students learn to create and program an autonomous robot with a TI-RSLK kit provided by Texas Instruments and have the opportunity to compete in the annual racing competition and interact with UC Davis students and professors.

Along with the kit, NATCAR provides a free, flexible, comprehensive curriculum to teams for 8-10 sessions per week, each session ranging from 1-3 hours. Students can work with UC Davis students in real time, but the program is built to be self-guided or teacher taught. Teachers do not need to have any background in the field to help, as the curriculum has been designed to be self-guided.

We believe that this is a wonderful opportunity for high school students to further explore engineering, as well as develop skills that would help them in the classroom, both in STEM subjects and in a team setting.

If you want to learn more about us or enroll in our program, visit For any students interested, students can sign up on our student interest form: As for any parent or teacher, this is our newsletter signup to receive any updates from NATCAR like important deadlines:

From all of us at NATCAR, we hope that NATCAR is the right opportunity for you!

It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
