Summer Camp 2018: Recap

Our 2018 Summer Camp was a huge success, and we couldn’t have done it without the help from all of our dedicated volunteers. The girls had an amazing week building and programming their obstacle avoiding robots. They started the week learning the basics of electronics by building circuits and experimenting with different types of inputs and outputs. They learned about the Arduino IDE environment and the basics of Arduino programming. Building and programming the robots was their favorite camp activity.


A big thank you to the following people for making our 2018 Summer Camp so successful!
