Day 1 STEM Camp 2012 Recap

What a wonderful first day!  We were excited to see everyone and we had a great time working with LEGO robotics and exploring some astronomy.  The students built a spectrometer with Dr. Tim Knauer, Professor in the Department of Physics and Astronomy. One group was able to visit the observatory, but it was raining during the other session so we had to adjust our plans.  In robotics they learned the basics of building and programming the robot.  Tomorrow they will delve into some more difficult programming challenges like following a determined path on the mat.
