Dashing into robotics

Approximately seventeen 5th - 7th graders participated in the first session of the Summer Technology Program. The goal of the program is to provide upper elementary and middle level students a fun, exciting, and challenging opportunity to explore their interest in computers and technology.

There are various topics presented through the month of June in five different sessions with classes in the morning and afternoon. During the "Dashing Into Robotics" session, students work with Dot and Dash to move beyond two dimensional coding into a more intense three dimensional atmosphere.

"It's awesome we get to work with robots and scratch more than just in school," commented Zoey, future Culler 6th grader. "My favorite part was a competition where we put Legos on the robots to make snowplows and see how many cotton balls we could clear."

Other sessions this summer include working with GarageBand, MineCraft, Stop Motion Animation, Photoshop, and After Efects. For more information, or to register, go to
