Three Nevis students took part in the Northern Minnesota Robotics Conference (NMRC) robotics programming camp recently. The camp is held in partnership with Bemidji State University and resumed for the first time in two years after being shut down previously due to COVID-19.

This programming camp began in the summer of 2018 after NMRC member teams identified programming skills as one of the top priorities for student growth. These skills are necessary not only for teams to be successful on the field but in business and industry within communities.

This year, 28 students from teams in the region attended the two-day event.

During the camp, students participated in either the Level 1 or Level 2 programming course, in which they wrote code, deployed code to robots and tested the programs they wrote through a variety of hands-on activities.

In addition to the courses, students participated in campus tours and received presentations on postsecondary opportunities at BSU. They also heard from industry experts at Paul Bunyan Communications about opportunities in northern Minnesota in which their developing programming skills could be put to work.


Paul Bunyan Communications, BSU’s Department of Technology, Art and Design, the Minnesota Manufacturing Center of Excellence and the North Country Vocational Cooperative Council provided logistical and financial assistance for the camp.

Some members of the team set up the field and gave demonstrations at the Minnesota School Boards Association convention.
