SCORE summer camp participants learn how to build VEX robots and get personalized advice
“I enjoy being part of these SCORE summer camps and seeing the kids develop an interest in robotics,” said Tre Knight, a teacher from Auburn Junior High School. “These students are here because they have a desire to learn outside of the classroom and that makes this even more exciting.”
Camp participants had an opportunity to learn how to build VEX robots and compete in their very own 2023 Robot Olympics for entering seventh through ninth grade students.
In addition to the hands-on experience, these young learners received additional support and advice from valued teachers such as Knight. Students had the chance to ask for help and learn what goes into a precise robot design.
“The students here are demonstrating that they are self-starters that want to take the initiative to be innovative,” said Knight. “They are learning to complete challenges under specific constraints and become real-world problem solvers.”
Students built designs and then saw where they needed improvement.
“It is very rewarding to see a kid build a robot and then go back and make it even better,” said Knight. “They have an environment where they can make mistakes and learn how to improve, which they will be able to take back and apply during the upcoming school year.”
