Campers in St. Martin Parish are showcasing their accomplishments after designing their own robots.

The five-day camp took place at Teche Center for the Arts in Breaux Bridge where campers learned coding, problem-solving strategies while working as a team, and how to build a robot. 

They also played games and participated in challenges and research projects. 

The camp followed a curriculum by Douglas Williams, Ph.D., who is the Director of the Center for Innovation, Learning, and Assessment Technologies at UL.

"It teaches students how to work in teams, and how to problem-solve, and how to build things. And, it teaches them confidence on how to work together, which are skills that they’ll use for a whole lifetime," said instructor Kimberly Sullivan.
