Students attend robotic camp at Duke University
DURHAM — While many students spend their summers relaxing, some Durham County students actually went to college.
It is part of a robotics program offered by Duke University and Durham public schools. Program manager Brook Osborne said that it gives the students life skills and logical thinking skills that they can then apply into completely different aspects of their life.
“It has given me a time to get away from school. Not just reading, math, that kind of stuff. It's more science and that's my best subject. And I can get into something that I can't really do at the school,” said Zhane Strachan, Ninth Grader at Hillside High School.
Other students described the program as “fun and accessible because it's LEGOS”.
