(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Classrooms have been transforming with the help of technology and it's been a fun transition for kids.

This summer, students in St. Joseph are taking part in a Technology Blast class at Webster Learning Center.

They tried to mimic cases from Myth Busters and even created Sumo wrestling robots.

The lessons are part of a STEM-based approach to teach students about problem solving and critical thinking.

"Our society is moving so quickly with all this science and technology. We want to make sure they know how to use it, but also how to apply it," said Ashley Jevorutsky, teacher.

Students were able to show off their projects during a robotics showcase on Friday.
