Chester County 4-H and Penn State Extension are offering Robotics Camp at the West Grove United Methodist Church from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. from July 15 to 19.

Thanks to a grant from the Altria Foundation, this one-week camp is offered free of charge.

Designed for children who have completed the fourth through eighth grades, the camp will feature opportunities for kids to build a NXT-based robot like the ones used in Lego Mindstorms competitions. Campers will learn basic construction techniques, simple programming skills and how to use various sensors. This week will end with a Sumo Wrestling Lego Robots competition.

Pre-registration is required at or call the extension office at 610-696-3500.
