LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Children throughout Greater Lafayette are given the chance to explore their interests in the stem field.

Over 150 students from the Y-Care Program are attending a robotics manufacturing camp this summer.

The camp is organized by Greater Lafayette Commerce with the hopes of making children interested in stem fields.
Attendees are given the opportunity to learn about programming, robotics, and manufacturing.

WorkForce development director for Greater Lafayette Commerce, Kara Webb says she believes educating children will help better prepare for their future.

"Manufacturers are looking for their future workforce and we know that two extremely high in demand skill sets will be robotics, coding, and programming," Listed Webb. "We just want to make sure everybody has a chance to get these skill sets and discover really whats in manufacturing,"

This will be the second year for the camp. Webb added their plan is to expand out into surrounding counties by the summer of 2020.

Groups will be split into three one week long camps. Students participating in the first two weeks are grades 3rd through 8th. The last week will be K through 2nd.

Admission fee for the camp is one hundred and fifty dollars for each student.
