DOTHAN, AL--Robots, robots and more robots.
Meet professor Caleb Price and his robot Max.

"My robot can talk and it can walk and it can help me do my chores and it can help me do my homework and help me answer a really hard question on a test."

Professor Price created Max with simple pieces.

"4 chip cans and two boxes."

And here's Rosie created by professor Jordis Reed.
Rosie can do something many robots can't.

"Fly."

Professor Reed says although she forgot to equip Rosie with some special features "I forgot to put the wings on it," She still has magical powers.

These professors are among a group of kids who spent the week learning about robotics and space.

"They've been kind of surprised to find out, what they thought was robotics, they had more robotics in their home than they thought they did," said 2nd grade teacher Sandy Sanders.

The camp has two groups. One for first through third graders and another for fourth through sixth graders.

The kids also got a chance to Skype with employees at NASA Space Centers and learn about the robots they use to complete missions.
