Camp Staff
Lisa Howard 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
We will build, program and design robots using the LEGO EV3 robotics system. Campers 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. Campers will learn a variety of building, coding, and troubleshooting techniques.
