"SIUE hosted Robotics Camp in Mascoutah, Ill. to encourage creative learning and activity in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) through programming and design. At the three-day camp, students were taught how to make Sphero robots roll straight, turn and roll around in circles by programming line by line. For the camp finale, students used their design and programming skills to lead their robot through an obstacle course they created.
