A typical camp day will begin with a classroom lesson on that day's topic followed by hands-on activities in the lab. We will be building robots and learning the process as we go, sometimes individually and sometimes with a partner. Campers will use the same engineering lab that Penn State college students use.
This camp is for students entering grades 7-9.
