Our first camp of the summer is officially over, and it was a great time for Bentley! This past week he has been at UAA all day every day participating in their engineering summer programs. The only session open to entering 5th graders is the Lego Mindstorm Robotics ones so that is what he did. I was very excited about it because we bought some Mindstorms a year ago but haven't really gotten into them much yet - I was hoping this would kindle a fire and help us figure out how to use the set and have fun playing with it - I think it has helped!
Bentley's robot won the sumo wrestling contest on the last day during the official demos, here he is with the lovely creation:
His teacher for the week told me he did great and he's a hard worker, very patient & persistent. Always good to hear. :)
