Giving an A+ To the Youth of C++
Posted on: May 9, 2018
The YMCA Annual Meeting is a time of celebration for all of the passionate individuals that make our Y’s so impactful. And this year the teens of 7GI did what they do best…they improved the program. These 7th graders introduced us to a variety of their robotic friends, all created and developed within the 7GI: robotics program.
The 7GI robotics programs demonstrates the monumental accomplishments that can begin with a group of talented individuals, and a spark of inspiration. The Northern Neck Family YMCA proudly hosts these youth to learn industry standard robotic skills including: C++ programming, electrical circuit theory, OSEPP Block programming, and the necessary mathematical skills to understand robotics.
Their demonstration not only highlighted the intellectual accomplishments of the team, but also the sense of community offered by the safe learning environment. It was a delight to meet the robotic friends created by the 7GI team, and we can only imagine how proud the parents of the youth are, knowing their children are dedicating their time to the skills they love!
