Coachella Valley Middle School Students

Attend Summer Robotics Camp

 

College of the Desert’s (COD) Fifth Annual Youth Robotics Camps are taking place across the Coachella Valley this summer, inviting young minds to discover the wonders of science while creating LEGO robots. The robotics camps are aimed at middle school students and designed to encourage technically minded local middle school students to develop an understanding of robotics and practice creative problem solving. Students will learn about advanced robotic technology and use what they learn to create a robot of their own design. The fourth of six robotics camps gets underway in Palm Desert on July 21. Camps will also be held at COD’s Mecca/Thermal Campus in July and at the Desert Energy Enterprise Center in Palm Springs in August.

The July 2125 robotics camp will be in Palm Desert at COD’s PaCE Center; at COD’s Mecca/Thermal Campus July 14-18; and the final camps will take place August 4-8 and August 11-15 in Palm Springs at College of the Desert’s Desert Energy Enterprise Center (DEEC).
