Elementary students engaged in an exciting summer camp experience at KCPT’s first summer camp, Brixology, developing critical thinking and teamwork skills as they built fascinating LEGO projects.
Children who attended the camp were eager to build and learn all about the engineering field. Gary Brock, Director of Education at KCPT, described the students to be “very excited, energetic, and fully engaged.”
Students created LEGO projects like walking robots in the morning, and learned about aerodynamics in the afternoon.
“We hope to grow and expand the camp even more next summer. Parents and guardians were thankful to KCPT for the wonderful summer camp experience,” says Brock.
The director of Mad Science of Greater Kansas City, Kathy Smythe, also spoke on the success of the camp. She says the camp is “the best kept secret that will no longer be! What an exciting four days for two Mad Science camps to take place at KCPT. It was a great way to bring families to the station while offering Science Education.”
