RADICAL ROBOTICS took centre stage at the university campus here this week as science camp roared into action.

Youths aged 10 to 16-years-old made their own robots and then tested them out against each other to see whose was better to end the week.

They also made video games after learning about computer programming and some were really well-done, said Deidre Quinlan, continuing studies coordinator for the University of Northern BC northwest region.

Using GPS was on the schedule to end off the young people’s busy week.
