Kids Prepare For the Future Using Legos

July 27, 2007

About 40 area middle schoolers are playing with legos as part of a camp to get them ready for college.

UVa's Sytems Robotic Camp aims to get kids interested in science. For a week kids team up with UVa engineering students to build robots that solve real life problems, like getting from point A to point B, or sweeping the sea floor for a ship wreck.

Some kids say the camp definitley peaked their interest.

"We are building robots that are able to follow this black line that is on the floor" said Kyle Kugler of Scottsville Elementary.

"We're all trying to win this prize" said Montana Cone from Murray Elementary.

The camp teaches parents how to make sure their kids are ready for engineering and science programs in college.
