Students to build robots after school

Oct. 02, 2013 @ 06:45 AM

HUNTINGTON — Mid­dle school students will have an opportunity to design, build and program their own robots at “Arts & Bots,” an after-school camp hosted at the Robert C. Byrd Institute for Advanced Flex­ible Manufacturing (RCBI) in October.

The camp, co-sponsored by Marshall University’s June Harless Center and RCBI, will be conducted at the RCBI Huntington Advanced Manufacturing Technology Center, 1050 4th Ave. The camp continues each Monday and Tuesday through Oct. 21.

“Arts & Bots” integrates technology, literature and history through the use of familiar art supplies, cir­cuit boards, lights, motors and sensors while promot­ing technological literacy and informal learning. The registration fee for the six­session camp is $160. For more information or to sign up, contact Carrie-Meghan Quick at 304-481-0544 or e­mail quickblanco@marshall. edu.
