Kids, robots take off at SpaceTeams Camp

 SAN ANTONIO, TX (July 25, 2012) -  Area elementary school students get some hands-on learning with robots at the SpaceTeams Summer Robotics Camp this week at San Antonio College.

 Students are learning about space and robotic exploration using Lego Mindstorms NXT kits. They are constructing robots and learning to program them using laptop computers. This robotics program aims to promote learning in the areas of science, technology, engineering and math using robotics as a tool to motivate students to learn while having fun.  

On Friday, the final day of camp, family  and friends will  attend a  mock tournament/exposition in the ground-floor Chill Lounge  in the Chance  Academic Center. 

Klaus Bartels,   adjunct professor in the Physics, Engineering and Architecture  Department,  is the instructor for SpaceTeams Camp. 

The Space Teams Summer Robotics Camp is primarily for students in grades three through five.    Funding for the camp is provided by Rackspace Hosting.
