Middle and high school students in the Syracuse City School District are taking time during their summer break to learn what could be a high-tech job skill. Starting from scratch, students combined metal with gears, motors, chains, batteries and remote control signals to produce mobile contraptions during a two-week robotics camp.
Students from Syracuse's Fowler High School partnered with undergraduates from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications to produce three films about life in the halls, classrooms and playing fields of Fowler. The Fowler students, Khang Tran, Phuc Do, Vincent Ndabaruta and Deemah Abdulwahed, participated in a 10-week seminar taught by Newhouse Professor Richard Breyer.
