Meet Sadie A., one of ITEC’s summer campers at St. Stephens Church. Sadie is 11 years old with big dreams in the STEM world. She participated in the Lego Robotics summer camp, but has dabbled in many other ITEC programs.
Q: How many robots have you built before and what was your favorite project?
A: I have built two or three robots during my ITEC summer camp. My favorite was the airplane that when plugged in the propeller would spin.
Q: Have you taken any other ITEC programs? What was your favorite one?
A: I worked with all three main ITEC programs, Lego Robotics, Video Game Design and Digital Media. I really like the digital media class because it is fun and allows me to be creative. I’ll probably continue taking them since they are helping me learn more about technology.
Q: Why do you feel learning about technology is important?
A: There is a lot of technology out there and I want to keep growing with it as it changes.
Q: What is your favorite subject in school and why do you enjoy it?
A: I really like science because it is used in just about everything.
