Local News

OGDEN, Utah (News4Utah) – It was a special day for students at the Utah School for the Blind in Ogden Thursday. They had a STEM and robotics camp.

About 30 kids of all ages went to school to get lesson in robotics as well as some physics.

Students built boats to learn about what it takes to make objects float and they built robots and learned how to code them to do different things.

One student told News4Utah he wants to take what he learned and apply it to his future to help others.

“What I want to do is help increase what blind people can do like create some software that would help make blind people’s lives easier,” said Casey Reyes, 12th grader.

Staff members at the Utah Schools for the Deaf and Blind helped educate teachers from other states on how they can teach other impaired students.
