EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)-- Students and teachers in the Chippewa Valley are learning new computer skills.

Around 50 6-12th gragders and 3 teachers are learning how to code during the Blugold Beginnings Coding Camp.

During the week long camp, students will learn how to code robotics and games and learn how to program. One teacher says she hopes to teach the class to her students to prepare them for the future.

"I want to integrate this into my classroom next year so that i can kinda peak the interest of these kids. They love games so much well why not teach them how it works so that someday when they become coders for their careers," Sherman Elementary teacher Katie Albin said.

On Wednesday, the students will go on a field trip, where they will tour JAMF, UW-Eau Claire Learning and Technology Services, and the Blugold Beginnings robotics project.
