Virtual robotics STEM camp for elementary students

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas (KVEO) – South Texas College is transforming their summer robotics camp for the pandemic.

The camp aims to provide STEM education to 3rd grade Hispanic gifted and talented students.

The camp provides students the opportunity to develop skills in building and programming robots through a hands-on approach.

“The kids are on their own at home. So, it’s required a lot of support from their parents, the instructors aren’t able to sit side by side or move side by side among all the students and so the collaboration is all virtual, all online,” said Belinda Garza, Gifted and Talented specialist.

Students build and code their robots and participate in a variety of programming tasks and challenges.

Although the students are apart physically, they can work collaboratively with one another through their Google Meet and Google Classroom.
