At the beginning of August, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering (FEL) organizes the fourth FEL_Camp, a week-long summer event for students interested in electronics, robotics or information and communication technologies. This year, high school participants will build their own metal object finder or conduct experiments with ultrasonic waves to detect the remains of buildings flooded after the dam was built more than sixty years ago.

This year's FEL_Camp will traditionally take place near the village of Temešvár near the Orlík Dam from August 1 to 5, 2022. The organizers from the Faculty always think about how to combine their own research and project results with a fun and educational program, which they prepare originally for high school students.

"Since I was a child I have enjoyed archaeology and uncovering the mysteries of the past. I wanted to reflect this in the camp´s programme, which is mainly about technology, but it can be used for many useful things.  And the location of our base also played a role. The depths of the Orlík dam hide many things - entire flooded villages, original roads, bridges... The phenomenon of the '90s' from the TV series of the same name, which inspired the motif on the website," says doc. Jiří Vodrážka, head of the Department of Telecommunication Technology at FEL CTU. According to the organisers, participants of this year's holiday event will also learn about other technologies used in archaeological excavations, including cyber-archaeology.

From the experience of the previous years, in the middle of nature, where there is neither electricity nor internet connection, the boys and girls enjoy most that they assemble all the technological conveniences themselves under the supervision of older colleagues and experienced university teachers. They will learn to solder or build a solar power plant and then check how much energy their laptops or mobile phones consume. And they will be able to send robots made from Lego kits to the site of the discovery, which they will again assemble with their own hands. It doesn't matter that the probes and instruments for the experiments are mounted on wooden sticks for lack of more advanced materials.
