Camp creates a new generation
of award-winning robotics students


A new generation of award-winning robotics students took shape at a Velocity Jr. camp for junior high school students.

Crevolution - one of two Utica Community Schools FIRST robotics teams that has qualified for international competitions - hosted a one-week camp to create excitement for STEM (Science, Technology Engineering and Mathematics) among 14 junior high school students.

"We want them to be excited about STEM and show them the many career options that it opens for them," said Crevolution member Ashley Gee.

Gee and fellow Utica Academy for International Studies student Benjamin Schroder organized the week-long camp at Velocity Jr.

The camp used the First Tech Challenge resources that allows students to use a kit supplied by FIRST to engineer and build a robot that will compete in an athletic-type competition. MORE.

UCS means Success for this year's graduates and all those to come

Utica Community Schools has sent more than 2,200 new graduates out into the world this year.
