"We made a motor it was really simple but they helped us all the way through and it was really cool," states Jacobs.
A motor that is now in this robot car made out of Legos.
"Then we started making robots that are Sumo wrestlers and all sorts of stuff," says Jacobs.
Jacobs is 1 of 29 kids enrolled in this summer's Adventures in Robotics camp held at PSU. Students come from across the Four States for the camp.
"We want to get kids thinking about things they might want to accomplish in the classroom in the fall," states Randy Winzer, Engineering Professor.
It is taught by Engineering Professor, Randy Winzer and 6 college students who mentor the kids.
"Some kids aren't used to being in big groups so you have to make them get into it and feel comfortable," states Logan Johnson, Camp Mentor.
From developing teamwork to learning engineering software and how to make robots, the kids are being intoduced to a career Professor Winzer says is not to popular.
"We hear about the lack of science and engineering professionals in society," states Winzer.
Camp directors hope the program can help change in the years to come.
"We need these kids to come up and be the next generations of scientists and engineering to invent that next generation of great production," states Winzer.
Tomorrow the kids will go head to head in a competition to see who built the strongest Sumo wrestling robot.
