This week-long camp was held at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center; her camp was the Robotics Challenge. Her time in the Otsego LEGO Robotics Club sparked her interest in robotics. During the week, she worked with a team to design and build robotics. Her team actually won the extra points award to receive the Prime Contract, “In the real world, this means the engineering firm that gave them the challenge would fund her team to build and design their robot for NASA,” her mom, Jen, explains. She says she had a blast!
You can see from the photo, she got a flight suit, just like real astronauts wear. She’s holding one of the robots that she helped build during the week.
