Snow-Tastrophe' day camp held

The Washington County Extension Office held a Snow-Tastrophe Day Camp on June 12, at the Washington County Extension Office. The day was filled with fun and excitement. Around 20 kindergartens and first graders attended the camp.

The campers enjoyed a day full of engineering and robots involving a snow-tastrophe that took over a community. All participants were learning how to make their robots move around and help save a town under snow by creating attachments for their robot. They worked with many robots including Dash, Bee-bots, and Hex-bugs. Campers also participated in art activities and found out how they could combine art with robots. By the end of the day each camper was an expert at controlling their robots and they had the opportunity to show off their skills when their family members picked them up!
