Hampton, CT – Seats are still available for students in grades 6, 7, 8 and 9, who have an interest in EASTCONN’s summer Robotics Program. It will take place from July 11 to July 15, 2016, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday, at EASTCONN’s Conference Center, 376 Hartford Turnpike, Hampton.
Offered through EASTCONN’s Quinebaug Middle College (QMC) Mobile STEM Lab project, the five-day robotics program will give students a chance to develop and build their own robotics, learn easyC programming and engineering design, and participate in other robotics-related activities.
“This is a great opportunity to explore the world of robotics,” said science teacher Stacey Watson, EASTCONN’s Coordinator of the QMC Mobile STEM Laboratory. “Students will investigate robotics and their global impact on humans and gain related, hands-on learning. It’s an exciting program.”
The cost for the week is $145 per student. Healthy snacks are provided. Students must bring their own lunches.
