A special, three-day robotics education program will be held for students during the spring vacation week on April 4, 6 and 8 in Oak Park, California. Coordinated by Robotics & Things, the robotics camp is offered to boys and girls ages 7 to 14.
The three-day session will take place at the Oak Park Community Center and Nature Center. There, children will learn science, technology, engineering and math concepts through individual and team-based activities, according to the Acorn newspaper.
"Kids will have an opportunity to realize the importance of Math, Science and Engineering and have a great deal of fun individually as well as in a team or group environment," according to the newspaper.
Programming from the California and National Science Standards will be used to teach camp-goers how to create robots, robotic creatures and robotic vehicles, according to the newspaper's report.
National Robotics Week is also scheduled to take place in mid-April. The event, coordinated by the National Robotics Week Advisory Council with the help of organizers iRobot and the Technology Collaborative, will take place all across the country. National Robotics Week recognizes robotics as an integral part of American innovation.
