Camp Fire offers a variety of opportunities for youth to increase their tech fluency while having fun at the same time. For many youth, robotics is a naturally engaging first step to bridge the gap from being a tech consumer to developing the skills to understand and participate in how the technology actually works.
While we use robotics as a forum to build tangible skills in technology, we also focus on social emotional skills to build confidence, practice collaboration and teamwork, and develop critical thinking and creativity in problem solving.
