Right now we are in the middle of our annual Lego Robotics Camp. This Lego Camp is a great way for the younger participants of FIRST to expand their way of solving problems and thinking creatively.
Participants in the Lego Robotics Camp are given tasks to complete at their own pace while learning skills such as how to program a robot, solve problems, etc.
