Middle school students going into the fifth, sixth or seventh grades will have the opportunity to learn more about science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) at a July 21-24 camp hosted by NorthWest Arkansas Community College.

Students attending the sessions will have the opportunity to program a LEGO Mindstorms Robotics system. Topics will include mechanical design, gear ratios and programming. Participants will not take the computer or LEGO Robot home.

Cost for the four-day camp is $250. Participants are asked to bring a sack lunch, and water will be provided. Sessions will be from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. July 21-24 at the Shewmaker Center for Workforce Technologies on the college's Bentonville campus.
