The inexpensive and durable Vex robots used in the summer camp offer an easy entry point into robotics for interested students like Liam Coyle and Nathan Crow, both of whom are soon to enter 8th grade at West Middle School.
Coyle said he’s always wanted to build a robot, and on Tuesday Crow was eager to learn as much as possible during the camp.
“I’m getting really excited now because I’m really starting to learn about programming code and what it does,” Crow said.
Coyle and Crow both said midway through the second day of camp they plan to join West Senior High’s robotics program.
“Other people should look into robotics, too,” Crow said.
