SMART Robotics Summer Camp


The Spruce Mountain Area Robotics Team (SMART) will host a robotics summer camp at Spruce Mountain Middle School.  Details are as follows:


WHAT:  The SMART Robotics Summer Camp is hosted by the Spruce Mountain High School FIRST Robotics Team.   Middle School students will develop skills in designing, building, and programming robots through a variety of projects.  Students will work in teams of 4 and each team will have High School SMART Team members as mentors.  The program will be overseen by adult mentors, including SMMS LEGO League Advisor Rob Taylor and SMHS Technology Teacher Dan Lemieux.
