The Forge client, Mathstronauts, launced a new program in Jamaica
In July a team of McMaster students and grads, known as Mathstronauts, were in Montego Bay, Jamaica running a summer camp for youth. The camp offered hands-on activities, workshops and modules with STEM-based programming with a focus on robotics.
The Mathstronauts designed a project that allowed the youth to build a box truck, a popular leisure activity in Jamaica, and gave them the
tools to code it and make it mobile. They taught them how circuits work, how to code using the Arduino platform and how to use sensors and motors.
