JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A camp for kids had some adults wishing they could join in the fun.

Arkansas State University's Lego and Lots More Camp built kid engineers this week.

The camp was part of the “Be Pro Be Proud Initiative.”

Kids as young as Pre-K and as old as sixth grade attended the camp.

The Lego camp taught kids how to design, construct, program, and create things that represent real world designs.

Fisher Blankenship, 6-year-old Lego camper, said he learned a lot but expressed his favorite part.

“The Lego robot,” Blankenship said. “You can make some pretty cool Lego zip lines.”

Aaliyah Mahmoud, Brookland Middle School student, assisted other Brookland School District teachers at the camp.

She said everyone, like Blankenship, really liked the robot.

“They know how to work it, learn how to build it, and now I think they know where everything goes and how it looks inside,” Mahmoud said.

While building the robot, campers also learned to construct puppets, bridges, mazes, as well as other travel engineering products.

A mobile until visited the camp allowing students to learn about trucking and diesel technology.
