The Camp Discovery Robotics Camp dates are set, and we are ready for another summer of fun and learning about robots for boys and girls at St. John School.  Forms are being sent home with Upper Grade Students. There are two camps for beginners, Ages 11 and older, (or for those who want to come again) and one camp for those who would like a greater challenge.  Prospective campers are encouraged to register as soon as possible because of limited space in the camps. These camps are an excellent introduction to school robotics teams. Please contact Ron Burger at 317-784-9023 or .
