Girls Discover Thrill of Robotics at OLMA Summer Camp

As part of the Summer at OLMA Series of academic and athletic camps, 22 girls entering grades 6-8 are spending the week thinking like the future engineers and scientists they very well may become.  Brand new this summer, OLMA Robotics camp features

Lego Mindstorm® EV3 technology.  Students are working in teams to complete projects and solve problems using computational thinking skills.  Along the way, they are discovering how code translates into real-world, autonomous actions, while using color, ultrasonic, Bluetooth® and touch sensors to control their robots.

According to rising 8th grader, Angelina Meduri, “This camp really works your brain to create things that you enjoy.”  That sentiment is echoed by Robotics team member, Rachel Haverly, also a rising 8th grade student. “This is such a unique and interesting experience that allows all of us to be creative, learn and have fun,” she said.

During today’s session, the girls are focusing on coding their robots to make precise movements, like driving up and parking in the homemade driveway and garage constructed by teacher, Douglas Burhanna, OLMA Head Soccer Coach and Robotics Instructor. “The goal is to inspire their interest in science, technology, engineering, and problem solving,” said Mr. Burhanna. “These girls are completely open to the process and not at all shy. They are ready to go for it and are having a blast.”

OLMA Robotics is one of 12 camps offered as part of the Summer at OLMA Series. Located in Newfield, NJ, OLMA is South Jersey’s premier Catholic high school for young women. Through a challenging academic curriculum, diverse extra-curricular program, hands-on leadership experience, and the spirit of sisterhood, OLMA students thrive and are forever bonded in faith and friendship.
