Scott Bridgeman of Fort Knox recently attended Robotics Academy at the U.S. Space and Rocket Center, home of Space Camp, Space Camp Robotics, Aviation Challenge, U.S. Cyber Camp and NASA Marshall Space Flight Center’s Official Visitor Center.

The weeklong educational program promotes science, technology, engineering and math, while training students and with hands-on activities and missions based on teamwork, leadership and decision-making.

This program is specifically designed for trainees who have a passion for programming and engineering. Using the Office of Naval Research’s SeaPerch undersea robotics, Bridgeman and teammates strengthened teamwork and leadership skills while learning engineering, programming and wireless control concepts using LEGO MINDSTORMS EV3 technology, testing payloads on unmanned aerial vehicles and creating and piloting underwater robots.

Space Camp Robotics shows trainees how engineers develop solutions for real-world problems using real-world technologies. At all age levels, trainees use state-of-the-art robotics systems to compete in air, sea and land activities and missions.
