Albany Technical College SASET Program Kicks Off Second Annual Robotics Enrichment Academy Camp on Tuesday

May 24, 2013 - Albany, GA - Albany Technical College’s Students Achieving Success in Engineering Technology (SASET) program is kicking off its second annual Robotics Enrichment Academy Camp on Tuesday, May 28, 2013.

The Robotics Camp is part of the $2.4 million camp Albany Tech received almost two years ago from the Department of Education to encourage students to pursue careers in the areas of Engineering Technology via the SASET Project.

The 10-week program is designed to encourage students to use their analytical and critical thinking skills as they learn to build robots through troubleshooting and solving problems using their hands and minds.

Last year, more than 20 high school juniors and seniors from area high schools participating in the camp. Most of them came into the program with little to no exposure to robots and left the program working collaboratively in teams building a VEX Robot with components they saw for the first time.

Through joint enrollment options at Albany Tech, high school students can participate in the SASET Project. Their participation enables them to take selected classes free while they are still in high school. The program is also accessible to non-traditional students as well.
