Kids Ditch Canoes and Campfires for Ratchets and Gears at LSC Robotics Camp

When you hear "summer camp" you might think of canoeing or campfires. But why not ratchets and gears?

Those are part of Lake Superior College's robot-building summer camp that's free to local teens. 

In the four-day class, kids learn to assemble drive trains and wire the robot's electronics. 

Instructors say it opens students up to careers may not normally think of.

"We're trying to promote students to move on into not just robotics, but manufacturing-related jobs such as CNC programming, welding and CAD engineering," said Max Udovich, a machine technology instruction at LSC.

Udovich says LSC will train students for those careers at the new campus center in downtown Duluth. 

There is one seat open left in the second robot camp that starts next week. For more information, click here.
