PSU’s Adventures in Robotics workshops celebrated its 10th year this past summer. Randy Winzer, associate professor in Engineering Technology, said nearly 30 youngsters participated in the first week-long camp, which is designed for students aged 9-13.
“That’s about as many as we can handle,” Winzer said.
Winzer said students in the workshops learn not only computer software and technology, but also important life lessons about teamwork and problem solving.
He said he gets a great deal of enjoyment from leading the workshops and that the students are an inspiration.
“The excitement students have when they solve a problem or when they learn something new is contagious,” Winzer said.
