Students Build Robots at City of Everett’s Summer STEM Camp

The City of Everett recently held the Summer STEM Camp that took place from July 1 through July 3 at the Everett Recreation Center.

Youth ages seven to 14 embarked on an exciting journey into the world of robotics. Students engaged in hands-on activities, engaging workshops and collaborative projects all geared towards igniting their passion for Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

Throughout the camp, students were guided by experienced instructors who are dedicated to fostering creativity, critical thinking and problem-solving skills. Additionally, students learned about the fundamentals of robotics, which include designing, building and programming robots to perform various tasks like the Robo Dozr, which is a remote-controlled bulldozer.

“The youth worked in groups to follow directions and build these projects and we are so happy about the success of the program,” said Director of Youth Development and Enrichment John Russolillo. “We love to have diverse offerings in our programming and to expose the youth to potential career fields in the future.”
