The other amazing part of being a part of Science West, was that not only did they have camps about space and let you make rockets, they also had robotics classes. I remember the totally awesome experience of soldering my first solar-powered robot. It was simple - a butterfly that flapped wings every so often and collected power from the sun to do it all the time, but it was an achievement. We also built Lego robots out of a brand of Lego called MindStorms. It was one of the most fun things I have ever done, making robots out of Lego and combining two of my greatest loves. Later I actually ended up working for Science West as a camp counsellor in their Robotics camps, and it was one of the most fun summer jobs I've had.
