Young Coders Program Robot Routines With "Finches", Compete For A Spot At Marquette Techfest Gala

As part of Marquette TechWeek, Codefi in Cape Girardeau hosted a kid’s coding camp for third through sixth graders hoping to put their coding skills and creativity to the test. Kids were placed in groups where they programmed routines for their robot, called a Finch. But this was more than just programming routines for a robot; each group was vying for a spot to present their routine at Marquette’s Techfest Gala on Thursday. We attended a preliminary contest between the kids for this audio postcard.
