Over the summer of 2023, we worked with Camp Dreamcatcher, a nonprofit organization that runs a weeklong camp for children infected with or affected by HIV/AIDS. We joined the camp programming for two days of the week and ran eight one-hour-long sessions with campers ages 7-12. During these sessions, we taught campers the basics of programming and engineering through LEGO Mindstorms Robotics. We also brought our 2023 competition robot BAMI, teaching campers about its functionality and giving them the opportunity to drive and operate it.
For many of these kids, this was the first time they were exposed to the world of robotics. They embraced the challenge with several children naturally problem-solving and demonstrating their creativity with the LEGO robots. Many of these campers expressed interest in pursuing robotics at their own schools after coming to our sessions. We look forward to returning next summer!
