We are launching a new way to introduce robotics across underserved communities all over the country and beyond. It’s a concept that worked well in our pandemic-inspired model and now we are testing its scalability. It’s a system where every student can become a teacher with the opportunity to be rewarded for helping the community grow.
In honing this approach, not only are we introducing new students to STEM Education, but we are also building leaders and problem solvers who are prepared to take what they have learned and build a career path in a technology-driven economy.
The concept has been well reviewed. Our student participants were given surveys by the PEAR Institute, nationally recognized for evaluating out of school STEM programs. Compared to national averages, we scored:
10% higher STEM Engagement
20% higher STEM Enjoyment
18% higher Career Interest,
25% higher in STEM Activities
13% higher in Critical Thinking,
12% higher in Perseverance
9% higher in Relationships with Adults.
