York Country Day School offers a variety of summer camps and programs geared toward keeping student's minds working, learning and problem solving over the summer months.
Led by YCDS faculty members, Mrs. Amy Harmon-Krtanjek and Mrs. Liz Charleston, Mindstorms Mission to Mars is one of two robotics themed camps offered this summer. Students are learning to design and build robotic rovers that traverse "terrain" and sample the red planet's ecosystem using Lego Mindstorms EV3 platform. Students are challenged to use design thinking to solve unexpected challenges they encounter on their mission.
CBS 21 reporter, Mike Gorsenger, came to YCDS to learn more about Mindstorms Mission to Mars, see his report here.
