Community Robotics Programs

As growingSTEMS, we are developing the next generation of problem-solvers through the application of interactive lessons, community based robotics programs, and encouraging students to excel in STEM. We know the next generation will succeed through a combination of inspiration, creativity, and technical expertise, which is why we foster an appreciation for STEM, as well as the arts, through our programs.
