Middle school students learn about robotics during summer camp

Mandeep Jain, left, and Robert Jones, both eighth-graders at Howell Middle School, work on their robot’s program Tuesday during the Middle School Robotics Summer Camp at the University of Houston-Victoria. During the camp, seven students from area middle schools learned how to program robots to complete tasks such as detecting colors and following a path marked out by a black line. The camp is one of several mathematics and robotics summer camps at UHV that are funded by a grant from Alcoa Foundation.
