Oak Ridge Associated Universities Host Robotics and Engineering Camp

Oak Ridge Associated Universities (ORAU) organised a robotics and engineering camp for middle school students. Students belonging to the seventh, eighth and ninth grades participated in the week long day camp, which was held at ORAU’s Center for Science Education Classroom.

Middle school students designed, built and tested robots at ORAU's robotics and engineering day camp.

They spent their time at the camp designing, programming and building robots. The teams even tested and displayed their robots as part of the camp activities. ORAU organised many engineering challenges for the students. One such challenge was to suspend a cement brick 1” off the ground by using three note cards.

Students were provided the opportunity of touring the research facilities of the Oak Ridge National Laboratory and they interacted with the robotics engineering research scientists. Some of the local schools that participated in the camp were Robertsville and Jefferson middle schools, Norwood Middle school St. Mary’s School. Schools from the Knoxville areas were Sacred Heart, Bearden, Gibbs and Karns. A few schools from other states like the Hudson Middle, Elkins Middle, Coweta County Middle and South Madison Community Schools also participated in the camp.
