The key purpose of the camp is to help students, aged 10 to 14, learn about how robotics can advance economic development.
During the camp, the participants learned to build and programme robots using Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics kits. At the end of the camp, the students demonstrated new skills by competing to accomplish a series of obstacle challenges with their robots.
“The American Center organized this summer camp to inspire Vietnamese teens to study science and technology and spur innovation. By fostering an innovative learning environment that connects and excites students to discover, the American Center hopes to nurture talent and a positive attitude in STEM fields in the long term to help Vietnam’s economic development,” said Fenghua Wang, Regional Public Engagement Officer at the U.S. Embassy Hanoi.
The U.S. Embassy Robotics Camp 2018 is one of many free programs the American Center offers for local residents to polish skills in English, soft skills, entrepreneurship, and science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) fields./.
