BETHANY Submitted photo Disney Wonder offers wonderful cruise Genevieve Wilson, owner of Ocean Travel in Rehoboth Beach, has just returned from a cruise on board the Disney Wonder, as she and her son Colin enjoyed three days of Dis- ney-style fun as they sailed to the Bahamas. Wilson reported the ship was extremely well managed, with areas just for children and some places on board just for adults. The children's programs include games, artwork, movies and visits' from their favorite characters. It was easi- er, said Wilson, for children to get autographs and pictures with the Disney characters than at the parks. They were seen frequently on board the ship and on Disney's Castaway Day. Wilson recommends Disney Cruise Line for both families and adults. The two Disney ships sail from Port Canaveral for three, four and seven-night journeys. They may be com- bined with astay at the Disney World resort in Orlando. For more .information, call Ocean Travel at 227,1607. ,:l i i i lli ii:' ..... LEWES Robotics Continued from page 74 erovich taught students how,to write computer programs to tell the robots what to do to complete four increasingly difficult mis- sions. The program also included five field trips so the students could see 'how robots are used in a vari- ety of real-life settings. They traveled to Widener University to see how engineering students were programming the Mind- Storms units, dropped by the Uni- versity of Delaware College of Marine Studies in Lewes to learn about underwater exploration us- ing the robot Alvin, visited A.I. DuPont Children's Hospital to see medical robots and artificial limbs, and were introduced to Sim Man, a robotic patient used at Thomas Jefferson University to train health care students. The fi- nal trip combined tun and learn- ing as the students studied the use of robotics in the rides and attrac- tions at a Six Flags amusement park. At the mid and end points of the summer program, local profes- sionals who are familiar with ro- botics judged _the students on their progress and their presentations. Students, parents, judges, staff, and MBNA representatives gath- ered for an awards banquet, Aug. 2, at which scholarship awards to- taling $1,000 were presented: "I saw real growth in these stu- dents this summer," said program manager tbr Upward Bound Math & Science Center. "Not only did they improve academically, but they also boosted their ability to build teamwork skills. They faced each challenge admirably while working under time and material constraints. Thanks to the support from MBNA, this program was a real success." Upward Bound Math & Sci- ence Center is a federally funded program that helps students rec- ognize and develop their potential to excel in math and science and encourages them to pursue post- secondary degrees in these fields.
