Kellogg Community College and the Albion Recreation Department are partnering this summer to provide weekly robotic and science projects for youth in the Albion area.

KCC’s Bruin Bots program, organized by KCC’s Lifelong Learning Department, will add to the activities at Albion’s Summer Dreams camp, designed for children ages 9 through 14, and Pea Pods camp, designed for children ages 4 through 8. Activities for the older children will include instruction on how to construct and control robotic machines. Additional camp activities include sports, art, math and field trips.

“This is a great opportunity for the children of Albion to explore the field of robotics,” said Larry Williams, programmer for Albion Recreation.

“Albion students will greatly benefit from the collaborative efforts of KCC. We are fortunate to have the College expanding its impressive array of programs into Eastern Calhoun County,” said Albion City Manager Sheryl Mitchell.

Lifelong Learning Program Coordinator Kim Andrews-Bingham said the College is thrilled to expand its Bruin Youth Programming to students in Albion.

“Our goal is to reach broadly across our service area to engage youth in activities that are not only fun, but that also get them thinking about future careers and steer them onto a path towards college,” Andrews-Bingham said.

Both camps are located at Albion Community School and run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Thursday, from June 13 to Aug. 4. Registration is $120 per child for the entire session. Weekly and daily rates also are available.
