Harrison County Energy Express Combines Art with Robots

Posted: Updated:

 

Harrison County Energy Express students spent the day combining art with robotics.

West Virginia University's Science Education department helped the kids build the robots using computers and recycled materials.

The future little scientists then used their artistic side to create real animated works of art.

“One of them has built a dancing octopus so they get to put their creative expressions to use and then animate their creative expressions using the robotic components,” said Jeffrey Carver, WVU Science Education Department.

The week long summer camp finishes up on Friday with a Forensic Archaeology class that will allow the students to use prehistoric skull casts to determine what West Virginians looked like 3,000 years ago.
