On Aug. 19, a group of young science and technology enthusiasts demonstrated their winning skills as they hosted a robotics workshop for students in grades 6 through 10. Participants learned how different materials conduct electricity, how to design circuits and how art can be fused with technology.
As a finale, the team demonstrated the robot they designed for the FIRST Tech Challenge Block Party competition. Each participant left with a self-crafted circuit, as well as a heightened understanding and appreciation of technology and robotics.
Team members in addition to Young are Jane Kaitlin Young, Jasmine Young, Eyan Goldman and Cal Lavicka.
