Florida’s Saint Leo University has been host to 15 curious middle schoolers this summer, as the university’s School of Computing, Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, and Data Science (CARDS), a coed robotics camp was in full swing. At camp, students learned how to build robots and then how to code those bots to race, run mazes and even compete in a camp-wide battle. 

“I love the craziness — I love the creativity (the kids) have with what they build and design,” Dr. Monika Kiss, interim chair of the Mathematics Department in CARDS and camp leader, said. “This is not an opportunity they usually have on their middle school campuses, so, hopefully, they get a taste of what they can do, whether with engineering science or coding math, or all of the above.”
