Minnesota Robotics Institute June 2023 Tech Camp

This week the Minnesota Robotics Institute hosted 20 youths from the Minnesota African Women's Association, MAWA program at our first annual summer Tech Camp of 2023.  During this camp, scholars (M.S. and Ph.D. students) from the University of Minnesota taught activities that allowed participants opportunities to solder to make robot bugs, work with programs like the ozobots and Sparkfun, make laser-cutting designs, as well as to learn more about robots. Ultimately, the students presented what they learned and liked from the program. 


Special thanks to the scholars Travis Henderson, Corey Knutson, Helenrose Jorgensen, @Samuel Martin @Nicholas Padilla @ Noe Bazan @Adam Imdieke, Robert Hairston, and Nicole Kennedy, who worked extremely hard to make this camp a success. Lastly, a huge thanks to MnRI director Nikolaos Papanikolopoulos for supporting this program and allowing us to give back to our community. #MnRI #universityofminnesota #summercamp2023
