SMCSI's youth program was formed to encourage students from grades 5th thru 7th

to prepare for future success in engineering, technology and robotics.




This is a 5 day summer camp, where the students will learn about VEX Robotics and have the chance to build a robot to compete in a competition at the end of camp week.  The 5th - 7th grade students will engage in building and programming their own robots.  They will learn the importance of assembly, team building, and    communication skills that are needed to engineer and develop their robot.  Once the   robot is built they will have to program the moves of the robot.  Students also will learn the importance of when the robot doesn’t function proper ways to troubleshoot the problem
