I started training for my summer job on Wednesday. I will be an assistant at a STEM summer camp focused on building lego robots.

The first day was introductions and then setting up the classrooms. We also received our camp t-shirts so that we will look official on the first day and for tournaments. (The only two days parents will be around.)

Yesterday we signed contracts and reviewed the rules of the camp. Then we went over the software for programming the robots as well as the basics for building a chassis-bot.

Today we practiced building and programming robots. The teachers also planned out their teaching strategy for the week.

The teachers seemed to appreciate my feedback and have been including me in a lot of their planning. So that's nice. I enjoy being useful and appreciated.

The person in charge of the camps also mentioned trying to get me more money. I would definitely appreciate that!

The camp starts on the 7th, so I have a full week to try not to panic. I've had kid-related nightmares for the last two nights in a row! Anyone have tips on being around 4th and 5th graders?

Big thing to remember you are the adult. 4th and 5th graders are getting to that age where they start to get weird, they are still children but they are able to occasionally act more mature, but don't let that fool you they are still kids. Speak frankly and kindly with them and they will do the same for you. Hopefully most of the kids at this camp are there because they want to be so that should make it more fun for all involved. Good luck! This will be as much fun as you want it to be.

Thanks! I'll try to keep that in mind! Hopefully it won't be too scary!
