Aquabots Summer Camp Photos
Simpson County Schools hosted the Aquabots Summer Camp last week. Here's how Community Education Director Robin Hollingsworth described the camp: "This camp provides a hands-on experience for middle school girls in 7th and 8th grades who are not exposed to the engineering designs, information technology tools, and science concepts related to engineering and technology careers. The goal of the camp is to increase awareness at the career opportunities in the local industries that utilize these skills. Aquabots will introduce the Waterbotics, an underwater curriculum and program disseminated through a National Science Foundation grant. "
