Twenty young women sought for Underwater LEGO robotics camp
The Water Works Underwater LEGO Robotics Camp will take place July 15-19 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily at Roscoe Collegiate High School. Twenty young women ages 14-18 will participate in the camp. There are no fees as the camp is research project funded. Participants just have to fill out a research evaluation on what they learned at the end of the camp. Water Works is an exciting camp for high school students in which they build fully submersible robots. Using a great variety of LEGO pieces, their robots become increasingly complex and able to complete sophisticated underwater tasks. In the process, the students gain knowledge in several areas of science, engineering and technology.The project is funded by the National Science Foundation under the Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) program. The Texas Girls Collaborative Project and Texas 4-H Science, with lead organizations Girlstart and the Women in Engineering Program at the University of Texas at Austin are funding the camp as part of the NSF grant.For signup details, contact Roxanna Reyna at 325-766-3327 or 325-725-6912.
