PJC Offering Free Robotics Coding Camp For Area Middle School Students

June 26, 2024 – Paris Junior College is offering six free, week-long Robotics Coding Camps that take an interactive approach to designing and coding robots through coding and use of Sphero BOLT and VEX V5 robots. Campers will be presented challenging and innovative concepts in learning, problem solving and analytical skills while fostering an interest in computer coding/programming.

Each one-week, no-cost day camp is for students entering the sixth, seventh, or eighth grade in the 2024-2025 school year or who have completed eighth grade in 2024. The camps will rotate among PJC locations in Paris, Greenville and Sulphur Springs. The first registration deadline is July 2 for the PJC-Sulphur Springs Center camp that begins July 8.

Prioritization of enrollment will be for foster youth, students with disabilities, students from low-income families, and students from populations underserved in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) technical disciplines.

Enrollment is limited, and the application deadline is six days before the first camp date of the session you choose. Go to for more information and the link to download the application.
