Tim Velner, Coach of the Duluth East Daredevils Robotics Team says this camp is not only for fun, but it also prepares the kids for the future.

"Our kids are coming into this high-tech world and it's a world I was never born into," Velner said. "It's a world that they were born into and we have to at all cost allow them to engage in this technology."

Kids at the camp design robots by themselves, build the robots, and then program them. The goal of the robots is to solve a problem, but the process is solely up to the kids, Velner said.

The event was held at the Heritage Sports Center in Duluth.
