Summer activities and programs are important to attract students to careers in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM). Take Flight Robotics (TFR) was a youth outreach workshop and program that ran for one week during the summer in 2015 and 2016. The camp was very well received by about 15 high school participants each year. In addition, the program was highlight in the Baltimore Sun newspaper (article dated September 6, 2015). This paper provides a comprehensive summary of the TFR program, a look at the student experience, and lessons learned. Suggested guidelines, program activities, and technical descriptions of unmanned ground and aerial vehicles are provided. This paper provides enough information for interested instructors and educators to replicate the program at their home institutions.
