High school students build, program robots at UHV summer camp

Jude Stehling, a 13-year-old freshman at Victoria West High School, places his robot at the beginning of a maze Thursday during the 2016 Summer Robotics Camp at the University of Houston-Victoria. Twelve students from Victoria and the surrounding region attended the camp from June 27 to Friday at the UHV University Center. There, they built robots and learned how to program them to solve mazes, navigate obstacles, recognize colors and pick up objects. The camp was made possible by an Alcoa Foundation grant to the university.
