Lipscomb, Nissan Hold Robot Camp For Budding Engineers
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Lipscomb University offered a special program during the summer for budding engineers.
The university teamed up with Nissan to put on the BisonBot Robotic Summer Camp this week.
Kids, age eight to 11, had the chance to try their hand at putting together real-life robots.
More than 100 students were chosen for this camp, based on their grades and recommendations.
"All these kids were chosen because they're very academically high and they're able to put together things with their mind. They're the kids that, when they're little, want to take apart the toaster and put it back together," said BisonBot Camp Co-Director Ginger Reasonover.
Each day, they have different robot kits. Nothing is pre-assembled in these kits, so it's a big challenge.
Thursday's project was focusing mainly on gears and mechanical things.
The Director said the kids know it's okay to take things apart and put them back together by the end of the week.
