Summer STEAM is a 5 day camp where students learn to design, build and code their own robotic device. Using a microbit and recycled electronic materials, students construct a remote control robot complete with sound, light, and moving parts.Our plans are to resume this camp as soon as the Covid-19 pandemic is over.
