SUNY IT is hosting another camp this week. A group of teens got a chance to participate in a robotics camp called the Lego Mindstorms Wacky Machines Camp.

High school students got the chance to build moving machines out of advanced Legos. Using a toy ball, students built moving devices combining science and engineering while having some fun with Legos.

"We are building machines that roll a ball from one place to another with multiple things like elevators, slides, things like that,” said one of the participating students Cole O’Shaughnessy.
Students control their creations with ultrasonic, light, color and touch sensors used in creating connectable modules to transfer objects through space

The camp runs until Wednesday.
