I think today was the best day of camp yet. It was exciting to see the kids mastering LEGO robotics in the Green City Challenge. Many of the groups have completed the first 5 challenges and only have one challenge remaining to complete. Tomorrow there will be the final competition and the students will be scored for their complete run.
Our presentation today was by Dr. Robin Cooper from the Biology Department. The students visited the laboratory and were able to work with crayfish, fruit flies, and fruit fly larvae. They monitored behaviors of these organisms and recorded their results as a group. There were some good discussions that took place about why different organisms react differently to the same stimuli. Check out all the pictures of the students in the lab!
Pictures have been updated on the website. Check out the videos below to see the kids in action!
