Marioneers & Marioneers Jr. Robotics Camp
Launched in 2018 with funding provided through the Foundation in partnership with NextEra Energy, staff and students from Marion High School Robotics work with kids in grades 1-8 to introduce basic robotics and principals of engineering through the use of advanced LEGO® kits.
This two-week science and literacy camp is for students in grades 4-8 who would benefit from additional educational support. Students dive into a new theme each summer centered on technology and engineering. The Foundation has provided supplemental funding for several years.
