What to do this summer? Robot Camp!

Recently, I received an email from my Aunt Joyce. "Perhaps this would interest your robotics site visitors," she wrote. What she sent opened my mind to a whole new world I wish had existed when I was a kid. Back then, my grandma sent me to Bible school over one summer, and the only thing I can remember was how a teacher publicly ridiculed me for not knowing how to spell a word. I still have trouble spelling. Looking back, I know I would've had a lot more fun at robotics summer camp! If you're a kid into science or a parent with one, check out these summer camp links (hurry because the registration deadlines are approaching soon and they're filling up fast):
