Middle school students spend final days of summer building robot
CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. -
A group of middle school students from Montgomery County spent their final few days of summer break building and programming a robot.
The three-day camp allowed students at Northeast Middle School to work together to complete the difficult task and learn in a unique way.
"The goal is to make the robot do what you ask, which is kind of difficult sometimes because if it does exactly what you ask sometimes it doesn't do what you want it to do," explained sixth grader Malia Medley.
According to Northeast Middle School tech and engineering instructor Polly Kopp, the camp helps teach participants important science and math skills.
Participant Ava, 9, said she enjoys the camp and that there is no other place she would rather be.
"[During the] summer I get so bored. School challenges me and gives me something to do," she explained.
Montgomery County students are set to return next Wednesday.
