Writing and Robotics Summer Camp

Writing and Robotics is an afternoon companion program for campers in 6th – 12th grades.  This camp works in conjunction with the School of Education Young Writer’s Camp. In this robotics program, we will give students an opportunity to design and construct a working robot based on the writing they create in the Young Writer’s Camp.  The tool we will be using is called the Hummingbird Robotics kit.

All campers will receive a Writing and Robotics t-shirt, daily snack, and will be featured in a video of their experience at camp.  Since this is an intense hands-on experience, we have limited enrollment to only 12 campers, so we expect spaces to fill quickly.  This camp is only open to campers enrolled in the UNCG School of Education’s Young Writers Camp.

It’s easy to register for Writing and Robotics, making a full day of creative and educational fun!
