Robotics Camp Offered at UMaine Hutchinson Center, August 8-12- Still spots available
Belfast, ME – Maine Robotics will be offering a weeklong robotics summer camp for ages 9 to 16 at the Hutchinson Center in Belfast on August 8-12, 2016. The week will be filled with exciting challenges from building robots using the Legos EV3 model to programming them to do cool missions.
Interest in robotics has grown exponentially since Maine Robotics began offering camps back in 2002. They now teach more than 600 campers every summer and their program fits nicely with STEM curriculum goals.
The mid-coast area camps are run by Erma Colvin, known for her work at the Camden Rockport Middle School in theatre and dance. Erma has had a great interest in Robotics since she began running the CRMS Robotics Club 6 years ago.
