WKCTC to hold Lego camps

Staff report

West Kentucky Community & Technical College will host Lego and robotics summer camps for elementary and middle school students starting in June, according to a school news release.

The Extreme Lego Camps will focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics disciplines in a hands-on environment to teach problem-solving with robotics, software development, programming and mechanical calibration. The camps will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. daily in the Emerging Technology Center on campus.

The week of June 3-7, first- and second-grade students will use a Lego Robotics Construction set and build models. From June 10-14, third- and fourth-grade students will learn how to build and explore machines and mechanisms, investigate motorized machines, calibrate and capture wind and study gearing mechanisms. From June 17-21 fifth- and sixth-grade students will make robots move, talk and respond at their direction. During the week of June 24-28, seventh- and eighth-grade students will learn to control Lego EV3 robots by developing software-programming skills.

Each week-long camp will end with a show and tell time for students to demonstrate what they learned to family and friends. The cost is $225 per week, which includes daily breakfast, lunch and snacks.
