The Art of Invention
Robotics is a discipline with something for everyone. For example, an art student who took part in the robotics club accepted the admission offer from a four-year college for industrial design. Robotics is not just for boys or geeks; it’s for anyone with a creative mind.
This summer, stir the creativity of your child by enrolling him or her in STEAM (Science Technology Art and Mathematics) camp. Open to students ages 8 to 11, the camp teaches the basic principles of designing, constructing and programming Lego Mindstorm robots. Students will also participate in engaging, hands-on science experiments that will inspire future inventors.
The Gathering Place in Greenwood will host the camp from July 7 to 11. The cost is $105 per child. To enroll or for more information, send an email to Mark Snodgrass, Snodgrass@redalert1741.org.
