WAYNE - Young students in New Jersey are learning all about robotics this summer, thanks to a program by the Boys and Girls Club.

Middle-school students from across the Garden State are working in teams to build robots out of Lego blocks and see if they work in the water.

The kids say they really enjoyed working with the program.

"I thought it was very cool how you learn a lot of stuff about the robots you create," says Owen Smith.

"We made more motors on [the robot] to make it go faster," says Gavin Margreither.

After learning how to program the robots, the teams got to control them underwater.
