The New Orleans Detachment of the Navy’s Space and Naval Warfare Systems Command presented a robotics summer camp July 13-17 at the University of New Orleans Lakefront Campus.

The camp provided opportunities for 24 students to participate in hands-on activities such as robotics and design engineering. They also toured the New Orleans Navy Enterprise Data Center and help desk, and viewed demonstrations from NASA, FIRST Robotics Competition Team 3946, the Southern University of New Orleans physics department and the UNO department of computer science.

The SPAWAR Robotics Outreach Team used Lego Mindstorms EV3 robotics technology to inspire fourth- and fifth-grade students to dive into the fields of computer programming and robotics.
