Camp Staff
Lisa Finley will direct the camp this year. She has been teaching science and math for 12 years after majoring in middle childhood education with concentrations in science and math. She established a robotics magnet program at her previous school in Kentucky. Lisa teaches science in Penn Charter's Middle School.

Program Highlights
Do you like to build with Legos? Do you like remote-controlled cars? Do you want to fly? Then this camp is for you! We will build, program and design robots using the LEGO EV3 and the new SPIKE robotics systems, as well as build and fly drones! We will program using iPads. Each day, we will build a new robot design or add features to the robot from the previous day and program the robot to complete various tasks and obstacle courses with our drones. Campers will learn a variety of building, coding and troubleshooting techniques. At the end of camp, campers will get to bring their drone home!
