Last week, over 30 local Girl Scouts gathered at Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Minneapolis to attend the first of five Robotics Day Camps being offered this summer. A GSUSA representative and local council staff were on the scene to catch some of the action. Throughout the camp, girls built, programmed and tested their machines and even had time for swimming!
Robotics Day Camps offer girls the chance to become engineers by designing, building and programming robots. Girls use sensors, gears, levers and pulleys to create and operate a vehicle. In a structured atmosphere, they test their imagination while working in a team. The best part? No experience necessary!
Interested in attending a Robotics Day Camp? Programs are scheduled for Girl Scouts in grades 4–12, run from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. each day, cost $95/girl, and include snacks, lunch and swimming.
