During ASSET STEM Education’s first annual summer camp, campers age 8-14 were given the opportunity to use recycled materials and CREATE Lab’s Visual Programmer software to build and program their own robot. ASSET facilitators provided hands on, concrete opportunities for the campers to learn about coding and programming before designing and programming their robot. Specific attention was given to the components of the Hummingbird© kit; the hardware used in conjunction with the Visual Programmer software, and how these components attach to the controller. Campers then used what they learned along with their own imagination and innovation to produce one of a kind robotic creations. At the end of the session, campers not only shared their robots, but also shared their successes and failures as they persevered in the construction and programming of their personal robotic creations.
