Building blocks: Students learn engineering fundamentals through Lake Park's Lego camp

ROSELLE – Middle school students within Lake Park High School District 108 boundaries experienced a different type of summer camp this week.

In a joint effort, Lake Park High School and Program to Learn offered a Lego Mindstorms Robotics summer camp to students from the district’s feeder schools who are entering sixth through eighth grades.

The camp, which was held at Lake Park’s East Campus at 600 S. Medinah Road in Roselle, was designed for students to participate in a team-centered and project-based learning experience to understand basic engineering.

From 10 a.m. to noon Monday through Thursday, a class of 16 students learned about mechanical design, gear ratios, motors, sensors and computer programming.

Lake Park was named the recipient of a $35,000 grant from Project Lead The Way, the nation's leading science, technology, engineering and math program, to begin offering an Introduction to Engineering Design program during the 2014-15 school year.
