On Monday, June 17, Columbia Middle School students attended the first day of the week-long Creator Camp to explore activities in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, or STEM. STEM curriculum focuses on engaging students in those four disciplines. Creator Camp consists of four pods that students could choose from: Snapology, Summer Science, Under the Sea, and Exploration Columbia.
In Snapology, students will build and program robots to compete in sports themed challenges throughout the week. Today, students worked in groups, using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 technology, to build a robot and participate in a relay race. Students used coding to control the robots’ movements to move through a series of obstacles. Snapology of Lancaster is a STEM education program that offers fun programs for a wide variety of ages and interests.
